Danielle Bagshaw knew early on that she wanted to be a teacher. She came from a family of educators and grew up working basketball camps and saw the benefits in building those around her up.

While she is in her first year as an eighth grade math teacher at Iola Middle School, she spent four years teaching fourth grade in Independence. Bagshaw, who grew up in Chanute, also serves as the eighth grade girls basketball coach.

She says the most important thing a kid can know is that you care about each of them individually.
