A storm has hit the nation. Droves of people are fleeing the terrible climate, or in this case, walking out of classrooms across the country. Teacher strikes have struck like lightning in a few states, and Arizona recently joined those who are facing the thunder.

As we celebrate Teacher Appreciation Week, meet a few faces of education from Arizona, and hear what they feel are the challenges and rewards of teaching in today's society.
