CARPENTERSVILLE – District 300 students wanting to see their teachers muddy and hear their stories about preparing for a high-endurance challenge can now do so again and again on YouTube.
The Carpentersville-based school district recently produced a 30-minute YouTube documentary that captures the perspectives of 13 teachers and administrators who participated in the Chicago Tough Mudder event last month.
The short film follows the D300 Mud Studs team for six months, as 44 colleagues from across the district trained and participated together in the renowned challenge. The documentary features interviews from various colleagues and footage from the May event.
Former Superintendent Michael Bregy had the idea of a district-wide Tough Mudder team to unite teachers, staffers and administrators throughout the district. The film captures all sides of the first-ever District 300 Tough Mudder team.
