Here's what people are saying about the film...
"Teacher of the Year offers an authentic portrait of a teacher’s life in the context of an academic appraisal of Hollywood’s familiar model: that of the heroic teacher performer, usually an untrained outsider who, encountering the resistance of skeptical peers, gets inspiring results."
- Andrew Simmons, The Atlantic
"Teacher of the Year is a new documentary film that reveals the complex reality of teaching in the 21st century and explores the forces that influence a teacher’s performance for the competing needs of audiences made up of students, parents, administrators, other teachers, politicians, and the public at large."
- The Public School Forum and Education Matters with Keith Poston
"[Teacher of the Year] traces [Angie Scioli's] struggles to balance varying demands on her time and energy, and examines how the evolution of state politics has impacted her life and the lives of the students inside her classroom." - WUNC & NPR, "The State of Things" with Frank Stasio
"Teachers are desperately searching for accurate media portrayals of the profession we have committed our lives to. We depend on media to broadcast what we see on the front lines every day because we depend on voters to make informed decisions that will benefit students. Imagine my excitement to learn of a teacher-made documentary starring a real life teacher." - Katherine Meeks, The Huffington Post
