One of my most vivid memories as a child is my third grade teacher, taking time over several weeks to put all of us kids around the piano in her class room and teaching us the song “Put a little love in your heart” but Jackie DeShannon. At the time it seemed like a fun alternative to class. The older I get, the more it seems like a really great way to teach children about compassion and love. 25 years later, I think her method was beautiful and genius. It makes me cry to this day to think of her heart to make sure we internalized this message. Looking back, she was definitely a bit of a hippie. 🙂 Here is the song and I remember the words all these years later and have taught it to my girls.

Definitely. My singing teacher. I appreciated him when I was a child, but as I’ve grown I started to see him as a second father. He is now the person I respect most in the entire world.

My 4th grade teacher knew how much I loved to read, so she would sneak me books every so often that she thought I would like. It still means a ton to me to this day.

Vegetables. I used to hate them now I’m a proud lover of most of them! Ah brussel sprouts how I love you now.
