Comedian Gabriel Iglesias stars in this classroom romp as a good-natured public high school teacher who works at his alma mater.

The foundation’s Vroom initiative, which translates research on children’s brain development into tips for parents, will sponsor the series into 2020 with promotional spots encouraging parents and caregivers to turn everyday moments with their young children into “brain-building opportunities.”

“We are delighted to continue this important and successful collaboration with Vroom for the benefit of children and families nationwide,” said Paul Siefken, president & CEO of Fred Rogers Productions. “Vroom’s support is helping us to achieve our mission of serving our young audience with valuable opportunities to learn and grow, both on-screen and beyond.”
