What happens when a real teacher tries to become a Hollywood hero?
"Teacher of the Year" follows Leesville Road High School social studies teacher, Angie Scioli, over the course of a school year as she strives for perfection as a teacher, mother, wife, daughter, and burgeoning advocate for public education. This inside look at the life of a real Raleigh, North Carolina teacher is juxtaposed with scenes from Hollywood teacher movies, and interviews with scholars and experts in media studies, education, and sociology.
"Teacher of the Year" is directed by Rob Phillips and Jay Korreck.
