Project seeks thanks for teachers on Friday

I thank my teacher Ms. Marion Escueta for telling me to aim high and hit the mark - that if I keep my eyes on my goal, I can make it happen no matter what... -Maria-

David Isay, founder of the public-radio project StoryCorps, wants people to set aside a second day of thanks on the day after Thanksgiving and interview a former teacher who was important to them. Recorded interviews are being archived at the Library of Congress as part of a yearlong National Teachers Initiative. Other ways to participate include posting a memory of a former teacher on Facebook, tagged @StoryCorps, or on Twitter with the tag, #thankateacher.
