Dangerous Minds, The Ron Clark Story, To Sir With Love and Freedom Writers are just some of these!
Recently, I was introduced to a book (which has since been turned into a movie and stage play) by Mitch Albom, called Tuesdays With Morrie. The true story of a student (Mitch) who re-connects with his College Professor (Morrie Schwartz) after he sees him on TV talking about his fight with A.L.S. The messages in this book are important for everybody.
Morrie's outlook on life as he fights the disease is amazing. He continues to teach through his stories and thoughts about what he is going through. It's a fairly quick read, and very well worth the time.
Have you read this book? What are your thoughts? What are your favourite teacher movies?
