It's the quintessential story about teacher appreciation. No doubt this film will bring a smile to all children's faces (even the grown-up ones). Enjoy!

    Arturo, it's so cool to see you bring creative projects to your classroom like this. Do you know any other teachers doing something similar to get out of the test taking blues?

      Thanks Alessandra! At this time of year, I think many teachers may be working on performances for spring shows. I know some teachers also work on plays. As for movies like this one, I don't know of other kindergarten teachers that do exactly what we do. It's usually teachers with older kids that tackle movie projects :-)
