Eagle Eye: Why did you decide to become a teacher?

Christopher Shedd: “I was looking for a new career after 20 years in corporate restaurant management. At the Huntington county fair, my high school trigonometry teacher suggested, “you ought to be a teacher!”

I don’t think most students realize how nice it is here. All of my friends that teach or coach in other districts are always complaining about everything at their schools”
