Teacher showdown

I teach History, Literature, and Writing to 12th Graders at a private Christian school and the teachers included in these films, at various points in my life, provided some degree of inspiration to me in my role as a teacher.

I do have another list ranking movies about teachers...this list focuses specifically on the teachers depicted themselves as opposed to the quality of the film.
