JA Alumna Finds Her True Passion for Teaching Through JA

Original story from Junior Achievement of Greater Baton Rouge & Acadiana

Darlene Taranto began as a JA student and later became a volunteer. Through her time at JA, she was able to find her true passion. Here is Darlene's testimonial:

"THANKS JA!!!! JA has had a major influence on my life. I was in JA and went to the national convention in high school. I graduated with a Bachelors in Accounting and worked as an accountant at Shell [Chemical]. Shell sent me to teach a Free Enterprise JA class and I fell in love with teaching! I quit my job, and have been teaching for 28 years and absolutely LOVE my students! THANKS JA!"
