I'm such a sucker for inspiring teacher movies, and the Hallmark movie last night was wonderful! Front of the Class is also the title of the book written by the Brad Cohen. It's about his life with Tourette's Syndrome and how his dream of becoming a teacher was realized. He wanted to be the kind of teacher he wishes he'd had. I cried several times during the inspirational, touching movie. It makes me proud to be a teacher. Cohen teaches in Atlanta and is also a motivational speaker. The actors who played him as a child and an adult were marvelous. I hope you saw it. Here's his website.
Be sure to read Charlie's post on Berry Blog about some of his teaching experiences and feelings about teaching that this movie triggered. Thanks, Charlie, for reminding me about the movie!
