“No greater responsibility can rest upon any man (or woman) than to be a teacher of God’s children” (President David O. McKay , Conference Report, October 1916, page 57).

SALT LAKE CITY — Stacey Bess' early-age fascination with books came with a firm knowledge of her life’s work.

“I remember as a child that I loved the smell of textbooks,” she said. “I have always known that built within me there has been a desire to do anything that had anything to do with learning.”

That fervent dedication is now profiled in Hallmark Hall of Fame’s “Beyond the Blackboard” TV movie, premiering Sunday, April 24, on CBS. While it’s a retelling of the LDS woman’s first year as a teacher, the movie is so much more.
