Some teachers make a lasting impact on their students. The lessons they teach extend far beyond academics and, sometimes, can influence our life’s trajectory. Recently I interviewed 12 students of Lisa Hantman, a 3rd grade teacher at Philadelphia’s McCall Elementary School. The students, who ranged in age from 9 to 20, had vivid recollections of their time in her classroom. In this audio slideshow, played at Need in Deed’s Teacher Soiree and 30th anniversary celebration, they reflect on the role she has played in their lives.
