The Best Teacher

This is a story about more than kindness; it’s about the essence and the power that compassion offers all humanity.

If I were to ask you “Who was the best teacher you ever had in your whole life” would you have an answer? I’m sure some of you will and some of you won’t. I personally wouldn’t but, it didn’t stop me from enjoying this video and I’m quite certain it won’t stop you either.

This is a very touching story about a teacher who learned from her student how to be the best teacher he ever had.

Written by Elizabeth Silance Ballard and originally published in an issue of Home Life Magazine back in 1974.

The title of the story was “Three Letters From Teddy”.

For those of us that didn’t have an answer to the question above, how ’bout we just borrow Teddy’s and say Miss Thompson?

Wasn’t that a great story?

Now who can you touch today? Perhaps you could send them this post. 🙂
