free pro accounts for high school film teachers?

Hi - I was hoping through this forum I could talk IMDB into offering free PRO accounts to those of us who teach film. Maybe they(you?) could screen them by letting us offer proof that we teach film from a letter from our principal and applying using our official school email.

Below is a link showing all the media professionals I've had speak to my classes during Covid - I'd like to show my students the way real professionals use IMDB.

A standard IMDb account is always free, and you can contribute to the database.

What features would a high school film teacher need from a Pro account?

My last speaker, stunt coordinator Rick FIke, wanted me to go to the pro view to show something to our class during his Zoom lecture.  It was something to do with his resume and how other professionals look for eachother to get work. I don't frankly know exactly because I couldn't get there. 

I would like to be able to show them all the things that a Pro account does, for the sake of showing them what IMBD does for professionals.

It's an interesting proposal, and I think that can be useful for every teacher. I've also found a free database of good essays on movies on the Samplius platform. I like that the content of https://samplius.com/free-essay-examples/movies/ is available for everyone. I can use it for my classes as well as my students.
