Movies That Will Inspire Teachers


     Teachers spend their careers feeding and inspiring others. It's no surprise that teachers often need a dose of inspiration themselves. A recent Facebook thread had members sharing their favorite inspirational teacher movies. Some were funny, some modeled great teaching, and some modeled the teachers we don't want to be. As I read the list, I thought how great it would be to have a ready resource for those times when you need to pile up on the couch with snacks, and possibly tissues, and reaffirm why we all do this. 
     Consider searching for a quick synopsis before you watch these movies. You can determine which ones fit your needs and tastes, then sit back and be inspired! I'd love to know what other movies inspire you in the comments section below.
