Chicago Teacher Dwayne Reed featured in Old Navy Commercial

Last year, Chicago teacher Dwayne Reed’s “Welcome to the 4th Grade” music video, designed as a welcome letter to his incoming clas, went viral making him an internet sensation. The success of that video coupled with love for teaching kids to learn through a style he calls urban Disney, led Old Navy to tap him for their ONward! music project!
