Can’t wait to watch the new Hallmark Hall of Fame movie, A Smile as Big as the Moon, airing this Sunday, January 29th, on ABC at 9 p.m. E.T. The film’s based on a true story/book about Michigan special educator and football coach, Mike Kersjes, who fights to realize a dream to have his special education students take part in Space Camp, a highly competitive educational opportunity that promotes the study of math, science and technology.

Extra perks? John Corbett, Aiden Shaw, of Sex & the City fame, plays the teacher, while many of the actors appearing as special education students, actually have special needs. Big progress.

Education at its finest, and focused on ability.
