Magic Mirror At Our School :)

Last June, Anne shared the stunning short film, Magic Mirror of Betty Peck, at an educators gathering where two teachers from our school participated. Inspiration was in the air. We knew we had to share that spirit with our students.

Last Fall, Anne visited our school to brainstorm possibilities. We invited our Middle School students to construct a Magic Mirror for our school garden (as a surprise for the rest of the school :)) -- and they were in! Many other community members weighed in with many forms of support. They spent over half the year working on it!

They made a few mirrors for different parts of the school -- and a special one to gift to another school that we work with!

Yesterday was the grand unveiling. :)

Here's a slideshow of the journey:

It's incredible to witness how seeds of compassion, sown by one kindergarten teacher over half a century ago, continues to multiply into so many blooms of possibility today.

So much gratitude to this ecosystem and the way we mirror life's abundant opportunities to each other. :)

    Hi Daniela, I love this piece...thank you so much for sharing. I have been deeply touched by Betty's magic
    mirror as well! I have spoken with a principal of a school close by and she has agreed to give it a try starting this fall. I'm thrilled! I'd love to hear any updates!
