Theresa Constantine's education plans changed when she became pregnant at 16 and enrolled in a school program for expectant mothers.

Nearly 20 years later, after spending the 2011-12 school year working as a lunchroom and recess staffer at Crestview Elementary School in District 833, Constantine applied for a summer job with a temp agency.
