As a family of teachers & administrators in the US this is great resource
10 May 2016 | by iktruSee all my reviews

I appreciate this show, the dedication of choosing a teaching career amidst the lack of respect due by the parents & admin council is eye opening and disgraceful! However I find Rita's obvious calling to be a teacher plus her willing to fight the system on behalf of a failing system to be applauded! Especially, and maybe because, her personal sucks....She's lived her life by her sexuality & and led every relationship with her body, it's obvious appeal and sadly the need to be desired w/o intimacy, makes her endearing and you cheer for her to find that she, Rita, has value, and that she is enough, as is, to be loved solely & freely because when she doesn't feel threatened or that she has something to prove, and her guard is down, she radiates! I love is show and all the characters -- Please-please-please-bring it back for another three seasons!!! Binge watched and loved every minute except for the smoking -I sometimes swear I could smell it plus it's distracting and not really relevant to her story ....she must taste and smell like an ashtray! Just my opinion I know.... But bravo well done! Please do more!
