Teacher, Teacher

My brother Andrew, who is now in his second year teaching elementary school, was quoted in the September issue of Famous magazine. In their Last Word section, Famous, a magazine given out free in movie theatres in Canada, asks their readers to answer on a topical question.

This month being back to school, naturally a teacher question:

Of all the big-screen movie teachers, which one would you most want to teach your class?

My brother chose the very funny Richard Mulligan's Herbert Gower in the 1984 film Teachers, also starring Nick Nolte, Jobeth Williams and Ralph Macchio.

Unfortunately, I have to correct Andrew, though, as Gower was dressed as George Washington while teaching about the crossing of the Delaware. He did however, dress as Abe Lincoln for another lesson.

Read the whole Famous article.
