Tag Archives: teachers as inspiration


Recently, I’ve been thinking about teachers and what a profound effect they can have on our lives.  I have a special place in my heart for certain teachers I remember, whether it’s the first grade teacher we called “Mrs. Good Guy” because she’d let us have candy from her desk drawer, or the social studies teacher I had my senior year of high school who let me write a fictional account of Romany life as my one and only project because I was stuck in a 9th-grade level course due to transferring schools and making up credits. 

I’ve also been inspired by stories about teachers, particularly in films like Stand and Deliver and To Sir, With Love.  In that vein, I’m offering a film and book list that includes old favorites and new possibilities.
