Live Poll: Teaching Life

Intro:

There are some movie gems about neglected pupils and their teacher who doesn't give up on the young people. They have several problems to resolve, but see the future people within the little rascals and won't abandon them to leave them to their predictable fate. Please note that the teacher can also be a person who entered a field of different work from her/his educational background.

Which of these golden teachers, fictional or real-life person is your favorite?

Please report your personal hero here.

Suggestions:

Movies about teaching people who teach youngsters (pupils) the strengh to care for their own lifes. They don't necessarily have to be regular teachers, but also won't back down. It can be comedy/dramas, but should have the clear goal to improve the life of the youngsters. No pure documentations, but animated, if it is not too far from reality or if it is a story compareable to real life.

Not exact what I wanted, but I took Bill Rago on the list, so I will take Highway also on the list. At least until there would be a better candidate. But I also know that the issue is limited.

@ACT_1​ 

Thank you, ACT_1. Helen Keller isn't neglected, but she has deficits which are hard to handle. I also turn a blind eye in that case. Anne Sullivan is on the list now. Thank you for your interest in the subject and for your contribution.

@Breumaster​ ,

The closest that I've come to being in the UK was when the flight I was on from Minneapolis to Frankfurt flew over Ireland. My high school German teacher conducted tours to Germany and Austria. The price of the month-long tour covered air fare, travel, lodging and meals. The cost was incredibly inexpensive at $850 in 1973.
