Life in the trenches of that most honorable and frustrating profession...teaching. It's the start of a memorable new year at Harrison High. The self-conscious Mr. Stroope is convinced that his time has come - this year he will be furnished with the golden title of "Teacher of the Year," if only his smarter students would stop using words that he can't understand. Peek into Mr. Lowrey's History class and you'll see that he's struggling to even call himself a teacher. Woefully inept due to a complete lack of experience and social skills, he earnestly stutters his way through class. The only interaction his students offer him is when they steal his chalk. Men aren't much interested in the spunky and officious Coach Webb, but "not all P.E. teachers are gay" and she pines for some romantic company.

As a teacher of 30+ years, I related to the comedy, the drama, the tears and the cheers of this funny, funny movie. Saw so many people that I have taught with over the years. How refreshing! Someone finally did it right!!!!! Do NOT miss this movie. I have told all of my colleagues that it would be a great way to end the school year with a hearty belly laugh. Hopefully, it will go into wide, wide distribution so that everyone in the nation will get a chance to see it. Can the TV series be far behind? I could've have fallen out of my seat when they showed the scene where the kids steal his chalk - happened to me in my first year of teaching. Too funny for words! Keep up the good work, Mike and Chris and all who are involved in this riotous project.
