This week is Teacher Appreciation Week. So, instead of throwing on your favorite high school movie and getting caught up in the teen drama or comedy, maybe now is a good time to turn your attention to the faculty and staff. Ya know, the movie teachers that toil away in the background. They might be hard-nosed, or they might be in need of love, but they have good intentions. And they do their best to keep the peace as the jock gets the cheerleader and the nerd tries to get noticed.
Yep, being a teacher is a thankless job. But for all that they do, especially after a year of remote learning, they deserve not just this week, but a whole year of gratitude and recognition. We can certainly think of many great teachers that have inspired us and helped us get to where we are today (I'm looking at you Mr. Sangerarti, who told me to never stop writing). We salute them all with a look back at the many great movie teachers that have come to inspire greatness in all of us. Or, at the very least, inspire us to have a good time.
