In partnership with local cities, this ground-breaking, new series will highlight and showcase what the I.E. has to offer local residents and tourists. Greene explains, “This new series will be so instrumental in bringing awareness to the treasures of the Inland Empire. I’ve lived here most of my life and never knew just how many wonderful things we, as residents, have available right in our backyards!”
With a passion for history, Joel Greene – founder of History Brought To Life – began exploring ways to make history fun for students to learn. “I learned the most from the teachers who had a passion for what they were teaching. They made a lasting impression on me and I wanted to find a way to pay that forward,” Greene explains. Through research and exploration, Greene became an expert of United States history and honed his presentation skills in order to create an energetic and unforgettable learning experience. In 1997, he created 4th and 5th grade assemblies highlighting the defining moments of our history and currently performs over 150 presentations every year at elementary schools throughout Southern California. Now, 13 years later, the History Brought To Life programs have become a mainstay of the curriculum for over 200,000 students, to date.
In 2013 Joel created the Anti-Bullying show “Be the Difference” which he performs for elementary schools all across California. Joel hopes that by sharing his own experience being bullied, that students will gain the confidence to open up a conversation with a trusted adult if they are ever faced with a bully. He also hopes to inspire kids to support each other and be a friend when you see someone else being bullied.
