About this movie

A Hallmark Hall of Fame original movie. When Stacey Bess (Emily VanCamp) gets her first teaching job, it’s not at all what she expected. She’s assigned to the School with No Name in Salt Lake City, a space in a homeless shelter that is supposed to function as a classroom. The ‘classroom,’ though, lacks basic supplies such as desks and books, and her young students range in age from six to 12. Based on a true story, "Beyond the Blackboard" portrays young Stacey confronting her own fears and insecurities as she struggles to gain attention and respect from her students. She must also win over school board administrators and apprehensive parents. "Beyond the Blackboard" is based on Stacey Bess’s memoir, "Nobody Don’t Love Nobody."
