| We need to remember what a teacher can do.
Once in while we need to remember just what a teacher can do to make a difference. This is a movie that does just that. A story that helps us appreciate what a teacher can do to change a child's life. Sometimes what a kid needs is a teacher who understands that tests don't always represent intelligence. Sometimes we need a teacher who sees things a little different. We have seen this type of story hundreds of times in many different forms, but this wonderful little American underdog story has very good actors who make it very enjoyable. This movie joins all the great "feel good" movies that show us the many different ways people have escaped their beginnings. A simple story about success in a most unlikely setting. A very enjoyable "feel good" movie.
