The 5 Best Movies About Teachers

The 5 best movies about teachers

It might be summer, but that’s not stopping from taking a look at the best movies about teachers. Check out our top five in the gallery below!

For some of the most formative years of our lives, teachers are responsible for importing their government-mandated wisdom on us. A good teacher can guide us, shape us, mold us into the truest and most realized versions of ourselves. A bad one can make us resent the entire institution of learning. Naturally, most movies about teachers lean in to the former instead of the latter.

That doesn’t mean that movies about good teachers and bad teachers don’t coexist, though. Throughout the history of film, plenty of movies across all kinds of different genres have mined from the teacher-student dynamic. For better or worse, these are the greatest examples.
