The hero in my life is my wife. Jill is a Special Education Teacher and program facilitator at a major high school in the Chicago suburbs. The single most important thing for her is her students. She takes every one of her students problems seriously and tries to make a difference in each and every one of them. Years after their graduation they continue to stay in touch with her and continue to tell her how much they appreciate the knowledge and guidance she gave them. If all teachers and there are a lot of them would give to their students like she does our education system would show far better results. To her, the teaching profession is a calling after spending 17 years in the business sector. She answered the calling and returned to the university to get her BA degree and three Masters Degrees. That is why she is my HERO!
