I try not to post movie reviews, so I'll just use my scant leverage to try to get you, yes you personally, to see To Be and To Have, which is no more than a documentary of one very, very good teacher at work in a one-room schoolhouse in rural French. After a semester or so of "learning" that teaching is some ungainly amalgam of extremely formal positions on issues of classroom management, educational theory and anal-retentive lesson planning, it felt wonderful to watch someone whose teaching is just an extension of being a good person.

And it leaves Seattle on Thursday. Try to make it.
