96-year old Betty Peck is a retired teacher from Saratoga, California who taught kindergarten for more than 50-years.

Her Magic Mirror uplifted the lives of thousands of students, and many teachers and parents who learned of this Magic Mirror and made one of their own.

What is it?

(Story continues from "Read More")

Whenever one of her students was unsure, afraid or sad, Betty took that student to a classroom cabinet, and opened its door.

Inside was a full-length mirror, and as the student looked into the mirror, Betty would always have her hand on his or her shoulder and say, “How could you forget how wonderful you are!”

She would then offer loving words of reassurance, as the student stared into his or her reflection in the mirror.

“Look at yourself,” Betty would say. “Look. How could you forget how wonderful you are? Look in that mirror. And they would look in the mirror and just melt.”

Today, Betty who earned her doctorate in her seventies, still loves to read. And over the years she also authored several books on teaching, inspiring and nurturing students.

Betty encourages each of us to find our creative selves by answering this basic question, “What values inspire and guide your creative self?”

Whatever your age, the answer could change your life.
