Radio star Jacinta Parsons: my favourite teacher

ABC radio host Jacinta Parsons visited her old school to thank her favourite teacher for giving her the self-belief to follow her dreams.

In an emotional experience for the broadcaster, Jacinta returns to Blackburn High School to see her English literature teacher Meg Stuart.

During a chat in the school library, Jacinta recalled her former teacher's energy, passion and the way she instilled self-belief in her students.

'As I've gone on [in my career] I've thought about you (Meg) so much and how much you believed in me,' Jacinta says.

'I just want to say thank you so much for what you gave me as a person and the confidence of who I am.'
