Billie Jo Culver, AGWSR kindergarten teacher, never wanted to be anything but a teacher. As a child, she spent her days playing school, even saving lunch tickets to make it more realistic.
She began working in the field in middle school. Attending school in Dumont, her middle school class was able to go to the preschool there to assist the teacher. It was her first step into a real classroom situation. As a freshman in high school, Culver rode the school bus for the first time to Hampton.
