Teacher Tribute
Teacher Lisa Hantman interviews her dad

Lisa learns things she never knew about her father

Lisa Hantman's way of interacting with her students, listening to their concerns, encouraging their natural curiosity has always impressed us.

So it did not surprise us that Lisa would demonstrate these same qualities when interviewing her father, encouraging him to share some of the most intimate stories from his life.

We hope that listening to Lisa interview her father will motivate you to take the time this holiday season to spend time with those you love.

The National Day of Listening was started by StoryCorps in 2008 as a way to provide an alternative to "Black Friday" shopping sprees. By participating in this day, we hope you will find that taking the time out to interview someone about his or her life is the least expensive but most meaningful gift we give.
