(KPRC) Larry Mcintosh has wanted to teach since junior high, when one of his teachers, a band director, had an impact on him.
Now, at 61-years-old he is getting the chance to do the same at Deady Middle School in Houston, Texas.
His journey to his classroom took decades, but the first-year teacher said he knows this is what he was meant to do.
"The excitement they get about learning. To see how much fun they have, honest to God, it sends shivers up and down my spine," Mcintosh said.
