Other Great Movies with Great Teachers:

To Sir With Love
Sidney Poitier is Mark Thackeray, an engineer who takes a teaching position at a school in the slums of London’s East End in 1967 when he can’t find a job in his field. He manages to inspire his rambunctious white students to pursue their own form of excellence — and discovers a love for his newfound profession.

Stand and Deliver
Edward James Olmos plays real-life math teacher Jaime Escalante, who worked in an inner-city East L.A. public high school in the early 1980s and imbued in his students a facility for calculus.

Dead Poets Society
Robin Williams portrays an instructor at an aristocratic academy in Vermont in 1959, who breaks out of the old rules to inspire his students to live for the day.  

Mr. Holland’s Opus
A 1965-based drama starring Richard Dreyfuss, whose character is a better teacher to his students than he is to his own son, who is deaf.
