I watched it back-to-back-to-back.
3 March 2003 | by (McKinney, TX) – See all my reviews

This is a fantastic, engaging, wonderful documentary. It chronicles the the first year of teaching in inner-city Los Angeles for five (and on DVD, six) first time teachers.

The insight these heroes give into the rights and wrongs of the teaching profession are emotional and inspiring. It is a film that every citizen of this country must see.

The DVD adds a promotional video called TEACH, and the teacher commentaries options provides further insight into the lives these five fascinating individuals that you cannot help but love.
