Bright-eyed and bushy-tailed, Ms.Sugarcoat is eager to mold the young minds of the future. But university textbooks didn’t prepare her for helicopter parents, entitled high-needs students, and political correctness at the cost of telling the truth. When Pat the Beaver shows up, Ms.Sugarcoat’s delicately controlled world threatens to implode.
A show for teachers, beaver lovers and you, because you are special.
