Inspiring Teachers

SBS Documentary Series | 4 x26 mins

Teachers are the unsung heroes of our community. Many people can remember at least one teacher who inspired them during their formative years – someone who played a pivotal role in their lives.

In a series of four half hour programs we follow four teachers to explore what makes them inspiring and what impact they have on students. The series celebrates the work of teachers who are often undervalued. Where does this passion for teaching derive from and how is it conveyed to pupils?

Shot as observational portraits each episode features one teacher, following them from the classroom to their extra curricular work and the relationships with their students, parents and the community at large.
