Great Story About a Teacher Making a Difference

Like all teachers, I love to hear a good story of a student recognizing the positive influence of his or her teacher(s). This morning on my way to school I listened to this story on NPR's "Story Corps" segment. Boy Lifts Book; Librarian Changes Boy's Life is a story told by Judge Olly Neal about his high school's librarian who went way out of her way to find books that he enjoyed reading. Listening to the story might be the best three minutes of your morning.
