Teacher of the Year

TeacheroftheYearFINAL Play Button

After being awarded the California Teacher of the Year award, English teacher and department chair Mitch Carter receives a lucrative, tempting job offer. He struggles with the decision to leave Truman High School, and a faculty chocked full of eccentric personalities: a ladder-climbing principal Ron Douche (Key), hyper-competitive robotics teacher, surly assistant principal, and incompetent twin guidance counselors. However, a bitter student’s accusation that Mitch’s best friend, math teacher Brian Collins, sexual harassed her, threatens to derail everything. Written and directed by a former teacher and current high school principal, Teacher of the Year hilariously chronicles the high-school experience in faux-documentary style.
