Summary This week, Insight takes a look inside the classroom at how some of our most inspirational teachers engage with their students. While the declining academic performance of Australian school students in international rankings may have captured the headlines, for some students the influence of their teachers goes far beyond test results; teachers have changed their lives.<br /><br />Denzyl Moncrieff grew up in a tough environment. By the end of year 9 he wasn't interested in going to school or making friends. The moment when Suzy Urbaniak singled out his performance in a year 10 science test changed everything. Donna Loughran was an absent high school student. She was bored and didn't see the relevance of what she was learning at school. By Year 11, Donna had a decision to make about the kind of future she wanted. Luckily, she had Steve Duclos for legal studies and he showed her the possibilities. Omar Sawan was an angry student. He says he lost count of the number of times he was suspended from school. At one point he challenged the principal to expel him. That principal, Jihad Dib, refused and managed to see potential in an angry school kid.<br /><br />What happened when these students met the teacher that changed their life? This week, Insight hears their remarkable stories
