I just came across a really funny short film called Teacher of The Year which just so happens to be an Official Selection for the 2012 Tribeca Film Festival. The film is online and you can watch it below!
The short film is a day in the life of Ethan Collins, a severely depressed, foul-mouthed elementary school teacher. Ethan shares his thoughts on life, love, and the historical accuracy of the school textbooks with his third grade class. The first thing he writes on the board is “Marriage = Settling.” LOL. Ethan must rely on these kids in addition to a kindhearted colleague named Abigail, if he is going to… actually, you know what? Screw it. He’ll probably just lose his job.
The film stars Gil Zabarsky as the teacher, along with Kathleen Littlefield and Rachel Dratch. Find out what happens in the Teacher of the Year short film below.
