The inspiring teachers in the movies that I am including in this list are, without a doubt, great examples of educators who are fearless, committed, and dedicated - qualities that are truly admirable for a group of people that we encounter in different stages of our lives. We should honor those teachers who have touched our lives and guided us in learning, not only our academic lessons, but important life lessons that we hold dear even after we leave the four walls of the classroom. Here are some inspiring teachers in the movies:
1. John Keating
In the 1989 movie Dead Poets Society, Robin Williams played the role of John Keating, a rather unusual English teacher at the Welton Academy employing unorthodox teaching methods. This is the movie that I can watch again and again because of its poetry angle. The common denominator among inspiring teachers in the movies is their ability to make viewers feel warm and happy for the lessons they impart, whether it's letting go of the past to give way to the present and the future, or believing in yourself to realize your potential.
