The Inspiring Teacher Movie that you need to see!

Go to right now and have every teacher you know watch this movie.

It reminds me why I teach. I teach not for any high brow ideas of imparting incredible knowledge, although I want my students to be well educated. I teach not to receive great accolades, for the greatest of teachers often receive no thank yous in front of immense crowds. It is stories like this one that color our lives. We all have them. That pivotal child who shows us the power of a good teacher.

I teach because I love them. I teach because they need me.

And I teach…

because I need them too.

It’s a good thing I’m working from home today. It wouldn’t do to be sitting in the office with mascara running down my cheeks!

Well I am working in the office and I don’t care if I have tears running down my cheeks. Thank you for sharing. That really made my day!

This was a tear-jerker. i remember the story but adding the music and photos made it all the more powerful. i promptly sent it to my wife, a 4th grade teacher.

One point to consider…this movie–which could have been made in moviemaker, imovie or photoshop–is selling for $10.

how’s that for content production?

A wonderful film. Shows the power of imagery and well thought out content.

Admittedly I was a little disappointed to find out that it was fictional, but after a moment realized how inspirational other works of fiction are and found this no different. Thanks for sharing.

I hope you have the time to read two inspirational stories that are very real and mean a lot to me. I think you would appreciate them.
