Gabe Sonnier was a janitor for a Louisiana elementary school. In 1985, the principal pulled him aside and said, "I'd rather see you grading papers than picking them up." So, at the age of 39, Gabe started studying. He got his teaching degree and, shortly after, his first teaching job. In 2013, he became principal of the same school he'd cleaned for 27 years.
