This week, in a conversation on Facebook, I recalled this 1995 movie, and knew that it would be great for Movie Friday!
This movie starred Richard Dreyfuss who played "Glenn Holland, a musician and composer who takes a teaching job to pay the rent while trying to compose one memorable piece of music to make him famous. However through the course, he discovers a passion for teaching he didn't know he had and ends up dedicating more of himself to it." (quote taken from Wikipedia)
The movie begins in 1965 and spans the 30 year career of Mr. Holland. It has a lot of great American culture in it. Definitely worth checking out if you haven't seen it before. If you have seen it before, check it out again!
It's one of those great teacher movies, much like the movie Stand and Deliver. As a teacher, I love these movies!
Have a great Friday! Happy New Year!
