The impact a teacher might have on a student can be life-changing – but are our teachers receiving enough credit? Inspiring Teachers gives credit where credit is due following four unorthodox Australian teachers as they educate students from English to Mathematics and beyond the classroom to their extra-curricular roles as sports coach or club leaders.  The effort and dedication these teachers show to their students is artfully captured alongside student perspectives and what it means to truly inspire someone.


Director Rebecca Barry and Producer Michaela Perkse have teamed up to bring us yet another great film, a few years on from the release of Footy Chicks.  This time, an observational fly on the wall documentary, that skillfully captures the essence of a great student-teacher relationship and why inspiring teachers are such notable heroes in our community.  This film, originally a television series on SBS, has received critical acclaim including gold stars from publications such as The Age, The Sydney Morning Herald and the Melbourne Times.
