Spare Parts (DVD)

Cover of DVD: Spare PartsCalling all teachers, outreach personal, social workers, counselors, and just about anyone who wants to feel inspired. This must-watch movie focuses on four Hispanic boys (based on a true story) with different challenges in their lives that find that innate desire to succeed. All they needed was the push from one teacher that saw their abilities and holds them to nothing more than the highest standards. George Lopez acting as Dr. Fredi Cameron is a substitute teacher that through the mist of his own personal problems finds a way to connect with these four high school students and pushes them to compete amongst the elite colleges in the United States in a robotics competition. The journey to this competition is a success on its own, whether or not they win or come in last I will leave for you to find out.
