When Ginny Neil started looking for her first teaching job, she had no idea it would lead her to the countryside and the life of her unrealized dreams. Coming from a middle class family that lived an easy distance away from most conveniences, Ginny began to worry when she started driving towards the very rural setting of Highland County for her very first job interview.
