Jill Kangas has been in education for 21 years with this being her first year at Pittsburg Community Schools teaching special education. Her commitment to ensuring the success of the students she serves makes her one of our #DynamicDragons.

"My family lived in California and we moved back. We lived in a town of about 300,000 and I didn't feel like I could move my kids to Erie, which is where I'm from. I looked around and Pittsburg had a soccer program. My kids played soccer in California, so that's why I chose Pittsburg."

"I enjoyed school growing up and knew I would love teaching it."

"What I really like about teaching high school is that the kids are so much more independent than other grades I've taught and we are preparing them to continue to be independent."

"The kids keep me coming back every day. If it wasn't for them, I'm not sure where I'd be."
