Re-writing the high school movie.


THE TEACHER is a narrative feature film set to complete production in the summer of 2015. Writer/Director Jeremy Engle has drawn on his experiences as a classroom teacher for over 10 years to create a compelling dramatic story that will counter many of the myths and half-truths about public education.

The film stars Corey Cott (Lead in Broadway’s Newsies) Clarke Peters (The Wire) and a dynamic ensemble cast of non-professional teenage actors who helped to develop the story through a unique collaborative process.
