Have you ever had an unforgettable teacher who changed your life forever?

In Eagle River, Alaska, teachers are under pressure to “teach to the test.” Elaine Moore, however, has devoted her career to teaching what she believes is the most crucial lesson of all, that learning only matters in its relationship to others. In Elaine’s Circle, that lesson will be put to its most severe test.

Elaine has been told that Seamus, a popular 4th grade boy in her class, has terminal brain cancer. Elaine’s Circle is the true story of how this courageous teacher rallied an entire community in support of her bold decision to engage the students in the most difficult conversation of all, the impending death of their friend and classmate.
