DailyGoodBetty Peck's Magic MirrorImagine a magic mirror that you look into to discover how truly wonderful you are. That is the kind of mirror that Betty Peck, a kindergarten teacher with more than 50 years experience, had in all of her classrooms. Whenever one of her students felt worried or unsure, Betty would gently guide the student to look into the magic mirror and say, "How could you forget how wonderful you are?!" In this short film created by a former student of Betty's, this wise woman, now well into her 90's, encourages us to have just such a magic mirror in every kindergarten, every household and every garden. In that way we can all say, "Thank you for every magic moment that makes it possible for me to stand here and to feel how truly wonderful I am." [Full Story on]

STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) is one of the fastest growing career fields in the past decade, with the number of jobs increasing by 24 percent. However, people of color are under-represented in the technology labor force. Code Fever is working to even the playing field in Miami, Florida. When Code Fever launched, they were focused on training, and they have created boot camps and hack-a-thons to help educate kids and their parents on various aspects of coding, including technology, design, and entrepreneurship. Code Fever now has classes and programs for kids, parents, and adults that teach them how to put their coding and tech skills into a tangible product. [Source: KarmaTube]
