Betty Peck

and her magic mirror

A FILM BY ANNE VEH & RAJESH KRISHNAN // MUSIC BY TODD BOSTON

 

SYNOPSIS

Imagine 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, 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 all the magic moments that make it possible for me to stand here and feel how truly wonderful I AM."

Learn more about Betty Peck and the magical way of living  that she inspires.

BACKSTORY

Filmmaker Anne Veh is a kindergarten student of Betty's 1967 class. On one of Anne's regular visits with her teacher, Betty entrusted her with the task of helping share the Magic Mirror with the world. This short film was made in the spirit of supporting Betty's vision that every home, classroom and garden have a Magic Mirror of its own.
