When George Lucas was honored at this year's Academy Awards ceremony, the producer and director took a moment to thank a group of people whose hard work often goes unrecognized. Said Lucas: "I'd especially like to thank a group of devoted individuals who, apart from my parents, have done the most to shape my life-- my teachers. From kindergarten through college, their struggle--and it was a struggle--to help me learn and grow was not in vain and is greatly appreciated.'' Moviemakers are also teachers, he added, "but we will never match the power of the teacher who is able to whisper in a student's ear.''
