This movie is probably at least 40 years old. All I remember about it is a young female teacher went to a small town to teach children. I think the townspeople were very strict and didn't allow a lot of modern day conveniences. Anyway, the main thing I remember about the movie is that the children could float in the air. I don't know if the whole town knew it or not, but I know that the teacher, being an outsider, was not supposed to know, but accidentally saw them floating one day in a field.

Yes, I think I have seen this movie, too!  Shatner is in it.  But I can't remember it now, either!  LOL!  Will work on it and stay in touch!

Donna and Narnia: It's probably The People (1972) (TV).

OMG I think I found it (with your help). Thank you!

It's called The People (1972) starring William Shatner and Kim Darby.

It was based on Zenna Henderson's "Pottage", one of the stories found in her anthology "The Pilgrimage"

FYI:

The film may still be available on YouTube if you do a search.

Here's the opening promo tease for the TV movie.
