“It’s not always easy leaving a profession behind where you feel you made a difference in young people’s lives, but I did such in hopes that my students would grow up to be successful when they graduated.

Join the Teen Driving Safety celebration! Celebrate My Drive, powered by State Farm, encourages teens to make positive choices as they start driving. High Schools and students ages 14+ will unite their communities to generate support for their schools by making safe driving commitments from October 15-24.
