Sarah Ebner at the Guardian has taken it upon herself to compile a list of the 15 most inspiring teachers in film. Because we're too lazy and because she's done too good a job, we're going to just send you right on over there. She has, after all, even supplied movie clips for each and every teacher / film mentioned.
Our favorites are, of course, Arnold Schwarzenegger's Kindergarten Cop and Robin Williams in Dead Poet's Society, though we have to politely disagree with Ebner's nomination of Professor Lambeau (Stellan Skarsgard) of Good Will Hunting. He just seemed like kind of a jerk. Can we nominate Robin Williams' Sean Macguire instead?
