Why did you get into education?
After I left college like most kids I did not know what I wanted to do with the degree that I had earned in Science. Luckily, I had a person in my life to help me with a little direction. I got into education because of an employee in the East Prairie School District, Mrs. Eva Hinshaw. She told me what an awesome opportunity education is. I respected her immensely and gave it a shot and it was one of the best decisions I have ever made.
