Libby, a high school teacher from Texas, talks with ABC News about how iteach gave her the chance to transition from a career in performing arts to achieving her dream of teaching dance.

I love being a teacher. If anyone has ever considered being a teacher, this is a great opportunity for them.” – Libby Claycomb
