Gail Diederich (left) talked to Callie Thuma from StoryCorps in St. Petersburg in 2014.

In this installment of StoryCorps Tampa Bay, Gail Diederich tells us about one of her early lessons in life. Diederich went on to be a school teacher but she learned a lesson about compassion when she was just a student in the first grade. 

Gail Diederich lives in the Bay area and has gone from teacher to writer. She's a staff writer for the Tampa Bay Times and has authored three books.
