Product Overview
When Brad was growing up, teachers and other adults - even his father - interpreted Brad's involuntary sounds and sudden jerking movements as attempts to get attention. He was ridiculed and teased by other kids, and as a result, he hated school! When his principal discovered that Brad's "acting up" was a result of Tourette's, he convinced Brad to become "the teacher he never had." Brad worked hard and refused to give up!

Interviewing with 24 schools, not one of them was willing to take a chance on Brad. However, on his 25th interview, he was finally offered a job as a 2nd grade teacher. Brad's openness about his Tourete's, his easy-going manner, and his gentle humor quickly won over his young students, and he became a favorite! In addition to the traditional curriculum, the students learned valuable lessons in tolerance, and accepting other's differences.

Marketing Highlights
  • Based on the true story of Brad Cohen, a young man diagnosed with Tourette Syndrome who defies the odds to become a teacher.
  • Premiered on CBS
  • "Hallmark Hall of Fame productions are typically feel-good, life-affirming movies that put a dent in your supply of tissues. However, not all of them are rendered as perfectly as CBS' "Front of the Class," an especially touching story of a young man who would not let Tourette syndrome keep him from what he loved most: teaching." - The Hollywood Reporter
