Teacher Movies

I saw a couple of teacher movies this summer and it made me think of my favorite teacher Mr. Voorhees. He was a math teacher. He has retired recently. I have made contact with him this past year and it was a thrill. He was always demanding, funny, engaging, and supportive. He believed in me. I will never be able to thank him enough. It makes me realize that the teaching profession has a lot of power. Teachers have the power to change someones life. We should not take this lightly.
I have seen all of these movies and would recommend any one of them. I have not put them in any particular order.

Stand and Deliver
October Sky
Akeelah and the Bee

Ah! These are great movies. I really like your blog and am attempting to create my own. I'm a senior in college and will be student teaching next year. I'm hoping I can get some advice for student teaching and overall help with my blog. Thanks! My blog is
