Did you ever have a teacher who changed the way you looked at yourself and your life? Almost every one of us remembers a special person who touched our heart and mind, who gave us a glimpse of what we might achieve or who we might become. This teacher may have been in a classroom, or may have simply been someone we met during our lives who showed us how we could become better people.

You'll savor this collection of entertaining, inspiring and moving stories about teachers, mentors and other special people who have made a positive and significant difference in the lives of others. Stories are collected from people of all ages, professions and backgrounds. Some are famous--Joe Paterno, Jimmy Carter, Archbishop Desmond Tutu, Dave Barry, Shari Lewis, Steve Allen--while others are ordinary folks with extraordinary stories.

Stories included here tell of the teachers who taught individuals to appreciate their own talents, abilities and uniqueness; sparked an interest in a particular subject area; or inspired their students to dream--and then showed them how to achieve those dreams.
