I have just recently watched this movie again. Freedom Writers is such an inspiring story. I could watch this movie over and over again. I watched it once when I was younger, and just watched it in my diversity class. I remember liking it when I was younger, but this time it really hit home. The situation that Erin Gruwell gets put in is scary. As a brand new teacher it would be hard to figure out how to handle a class such like that. Its inspiring to see all the work she puts into her class and making it welcoming. Then to see the outcome the students have at the end of the year.
I dont want to give the entire movie away. If you havent seen, and you are going to become a teacher, it you need to watch it. I want to be that teacher that changes students lives. I want to be that teacher that students feel they are safe and come talk about anything. I want to get my students excited about learning. Elementary Education is the foundation of your life. If you are not willing to learn you will not succeed in life. You are always learning, at home, in school, even at your job in the future. I can not wait to be a teacher and hopefully inspire people like Erin Gruwell did.
