Frances Neri Morton seems to have an endless amount of patience and energy. A must if you're a first grade teacher.
Here is John Muir Elementary in Fresno. Although education wasn't the first career path she started down, it's the one that's kept her coming back year after year.
Neri Morton says she really loves being such a big part of these young children's lives, teaching them skills they'll use for a lifetime.
