Sometimes, we get ourselves involved with a project without too much of expectation; just passing through.  Then something magical happens.  You become absorbed and engrossed with the task at hand.  You find out, it's no longer just a job.  It evolves into a calling, a passion, and before you know it, you rise to the top of your field!  Such is the adventure of once a reluctant teacher, Mr. Craig Brandenburg, who found his love and mission in life within the walls of his classroom. 
 
Awarded Teach for America's 2014 Alumni Award for Excellence in Teaching, Craig shares how teaching found him and shares his important mission and the opportunity it provided.  Listen to his continuing journey of inspiration, the unique gifts his students provide, and the secret to his success: pig feed and gummy worms.
