In this episode of the Heromakers Podcast, Laurie and Ann have a lively conversation with Darrion Cockrell, a PE teacher from the St. Louis area who recently was named "Missouri Educator of the Year." The three talk about Darrion growing up bouncing from foster home to foster home until he found a couple of people who went above and beyond to care for him. Darrion credits his middle school coach (and surrogate "dad") to allowing him to believe in himself and to dream big. 

Darrion shares honestly about his history, why we should all consider ways to go beyond the call of duty, and his hysterical journey to finding out he was named the state's educator of the year. 

You will walk away smiling, with a deeper appreciate for our teachers, and with a renewed step to invest in the lives of those around you.
