(ABC 6 News) -- Karla Dee is a High School math and science teacher with Byron Public Schools, which means her lessons are never boring.
She's been teaching for 12 years and says she's thankful to be an educator in the area she grew up in.
"I graduated from Rochester Mayo High School, I could just name so many teachers that had an impact in my life," says Dee.
And like those teachers that left an imprint in her life, she hopes to do the same.
"From the community perspective, and from parents' perspective, being able to entrust having their students in my classroom and providing for their knowledge and their safety and trying to help them achieve their goals, I just like being a part of that."
