    May 6 2013: All of the women on my father's side of the family from his mother and aunt on back have been teachers. It is what I believe is my calling, but because of rules and finance I have strayed away from teaching. I substitute teach from time to time because I love it so and I started my masters at Mercer University just because of the passion. Rita's video has reignited my fire to teach.
