Shannon Emerick, the Director of marketing and development for Main Street Theater, introduces us to Jonathan Gonzalez, their director of education and Outspoken Bean, a spoken word artist and teacher in the program they run at the Burnett-Bayland Rehabilitation Center for juveniles. We have a lot of fun discussing the progress these young people make in the program, learning respect and how to get along and make better decisions, starting with the words they use. Those words, as Jonathan reminds us, are how they usually get themselves into trouble. These children can decide to live productive lives and MST's program is one way to help them realize this and to make the right decision.
