Looking for an inspirational online video about teaching

Hi everyone,
I'm looking for a relatively brief (no more than 7-8 minutes, could be shorter)
video that is online. I want to use it to inspire a group of solid, experienced,
dedicated teachers about their work with kids. It should focus on teaching in general
- no particular grade level or subject, no particular emphasis on the future, or
economic competitiveness, or technology. It certainly should have emotional impact
and provoke positive impulses (not anger or disappointment)- although it can surely
be funny.
Any ideas?
This is for a teacher professional development project I'm working on.
Thanks very much.
Sincerely,
Jim Lerman

Hi Jim. I'm not sure if you've yet viewed Sir Ken Robinson's talk Do Schools Kill Creativity? It may be too preachy, but I think it is very inspiring. Have a look:

Here is one I put together, based on some fundamental views about special ed. For professional development, my own area.

The clip I most often use with teachers is "Shake it Up" at Teacher Tube http://www.teachertube.com/view_video.php?viewkey=8416a242f40fb7d7f338 ....It's only 2 1/2 min.
Thank you CC
