Erin Gruwell began her career as an idealistic young teacher confronting a room of "unteachable" students. Working together, they authored "The Freedom Writers Diary," and their story was chronicled in a well-known film. Today, Erin Gruwell is still a catalyst for hope as shown in her recent visit with students at Starr Commonwealth in Michigan.
