Sometimes where one ends up in life can be unexpected. Jennifer Dvorak, Iola High School English teacher, has taken paths that many would attempt singly and woven them together through her passion to educate.
Dvorak grew up in the Topeka area, attending Shawnee Heights High School. Originally, becoming a teacher wasn’t on her agenda.
“I wanted to be a pastor,” Dvorak said. “I knew that in order to be one, you had to have a degree before you could go to seminary.”
