35 Movies That Will Inspire Teachers


     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. I thought how great it would be to have a ready list for those times when you need to pile up on the couch with snacks, tissues, and the remote and reaffirm why we all do this.
     Teachers spend their careers feeding and inspiring others. It's no surprise that we often need a dose of inspiration themselves. 

     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.
