Summary

Davis Guggenheim directs The First Year, a documentary about five rookie teachers in the Los Angeles public school system. George Acosta teaches English as a second language, Genevieve DeBose teaches middle school language arts and social studies, Joy Kraft-Watts teaches high school history, Nate Monley teaches fifth-grade bilingual education, Maurice Rabb teaches kindergarten, and Andrew Glass teaches elementary special education. Guggenheim investigates how and why the subjects became teachers as well as the struggles they encountered during their first year of teaching. The First Year was broadcast on PBS in 2004. ~ Andrea LeVasseur, Rovi
