Jeanne's Story "Honored and Humbled"

Jeanne's Story "Honored and Humbled"

Three female students from Glendale, two tremendous debaters and one athlete, took it upon themselves to address the Springfield Public Schools Board of Education and demand that girls in the five high schools be given the opportunity to participate in competitive and organized sports. The School Board listened and because I was a physical education teacher at Glendale I was given the responsibility to coach both the girls’ basketball and volleyball teams. Given my height as only five foot you might say that these were not two sports that I had ever participated in and only knew enough about them to teach them in physical education class.

Tracy's Story "Ooz Wow Moments"

When I  was hired for my first teaching job, I went out and bought myself a small pair of diamond earrings by way of celebration. On the last day of my career, I put them on again, jokingly making the statement that after thirty years in the classroom, they were still all I could afford. No, my car is not new, my house not paid for and I would like to have more in my savings account. But if I was given the chance to do it all again, I wouldn’t change a thing. I believe I was right where God wanted me to be.

Taylor's Story "No Expense Spared"

"So in summary – YES, Hollywood is a very expensive town to live in. It will take everything from you, but if your heart is in the right place, you’ll consider it an even trade. And also YES, your parents are right – pursuing a career in the arts is a really really hard life. However, so is doing something you hate, but without all of the golden moments that come along only with following your heart."
