Teacher of the Year Chooses Sobriety

Jessica DueƱas is the 2019 Kentucky State Teacher of the Year.

In this conversation, she opens up about how teaching sometimes left her feeling empty, shares a very dark period of heavy alcohol abuse when her partner, Ian, died from an overdose, and talks about getting help and living a sober life.

While most people may admire Jessica for her teaching accolade, I look up to her because she is courageous enough to speak her truth and share her recovery journey with the world.
