Lori Oglesbee is a force of nature.

Born and raised in Louisiana, she knew while still in high school that she wanted to teach yearbook. She recently retired from teaching. During her 34-year career, she served as a yearbook adviser in three different states. In the course of her notable career, she established her place as a "triple-threat" journalism teacher, with the ability to instruct kids well in writing, photography and design.

In this episode, Lori and Jim discuss her life, writing, teaching students how to write, being named the 2009 JEA Adviser of the Year, how a clumsy dance partner led her to yearbook, and how an elderly man's search for his high school yearbook impacted her life. Lori shares it all with her southern flair for storytelling.
