“The Bush School started my teaching career. I’m driving down I-5 one afternoon in January, and I see Sis Pease, my US History teacher, driving next to me. She motions to me, and we get off at the next exit and end up having tea. She asks me what I’m doing, and that’s when I say I’m looking at getting into teaching.
