(ABC 6 News) -- Gina Grove says she's blessed to be a first grade teacher at Resurrection Lutheran School in Rochester.
"It's a privilege to be here and to spend all day with these awesome kids and to be able to share Gods word and help them grow spiritually, emotionally, and physically, its just wonderful," says Grove.
Teaching was something Mrs. Grove knew early on she wanted to do. "I was one of those kids who in grade school was thinking the teachers get to be up front and talk a lot and actually my first grade teacher Mrs. Lord was one of my favorite teachers, she was just a wonderful woman and a great example," she says.
An example that has obviously made a difference and hopefully will continue to do so.
"I'm living the dream."
