A Queen to Be: A Short Film worth Watching from Huntsville ISD Students

Huntsville High School students elected a special homecoming queen this past year, and the film students had the foresight to make a film about it. I think you'll agree that "A Queen to Be" is worth watching. Lucky for me, I get to see this lovely lady frequently in the hallways. Her classroom is right around the corner for my office. Enjoy the film, and be sure to leave comments for our student film-makers on YouTube!

Beautiful, Amy! Thanks for sharing! Reminds me of my 5th Graders and the conversations we have about the book, "Wonder." I hope my little ladies grow up to be a lot like these awesome high schoolers at Huntsville!

Dear Amy,

Tears in my eyes.

What a wonderful wonderful story of a beautiful person.

Huge kudos to the student filmmakers. They know how to tell a story well!

Hey Jenni and Linda! Thank you so much for watching . . . it was worth it, right? I'm so impressed with their work. Their teacher is very talented and clearly taught them well. Not to mention the character the kids showed in recognizing Queen Estefania! WOW! Thank you both for your kind words, for watching, and for sharing!

It definitely made me cry because not only did it change her life and put her in the spotlight, it showed great their ability to see through differences. They wanted to honor her and they did it beautifully.

Of course I loved the story about Estephania winning Homecoming Queen and I'm especially impressed that the students made this film about this beautiful girl and a dream come true. Outstanding documentary, interviews, footage! Well done!!!
