Turner High School is the home of the Titans, and the biggest Titan of all is Mitch Carter (Matt Letscher, “Her”), recent recipient of the Teacher of the Year Award. TEACHER OF THE YEAR takes us inside the halls of Turner High and its irreverent cast of educators, including Principal Douche (Keegan-Michael Key from Key & Peele), the Sklar Brothers as “guidance” counselors, and Larry Joe Campbell as the over-zealous Vice Principal. Shot in the vein of TV’s Parks and Recreation, TEACHER OF THE YEAR is a hilarious hall pass into the lives of these educators as they discuss the greater virtues of teaching their students with the fantasy of possibly punching one in the face. When Mr. Carter is offered a high-paying job with a school lobbying group (that goes against his very views on education), he must choose between his love for teaching and providing support for his growing family. A comic look into what makes teachers tick, TEACHER OF THE YEAR is a brilliant depiction of the efforts and struggles that go into educating our youth, as seen through the caring eyes of one of the best. – T.W.
