Synopsis

THE KINDERGARTEN TEACHER is a psychological thriller about a woman, named Lisa Spinelli, who lives a rather mundane life in Staten Island and teaches at a local kindergarten. She takes night classes in poetry and is a rather forgettable student. But she trudges forth, still enjoying the artistic pursuit, with a certain understanding of her mediocrity. One day she discovers that a boy in her class has a prodigious gift for poetry and, from that moment forward, does everything in her power to support and cultivate his talent—going to dangerous extremes to deliver his art to the world.
