Katy Johnson is our first guest from New Jersey, her friend calls her "the Lieutenant Dan of History Teachers".  Katy and I discuss our mutual passion for the study of history and why we teach.  Why is history important?  What are the most rewarding and challenging parts about being a history teacher today?  What do we love to read?  And what's it mean to "hug a cactus?"
