Gibson credits that teacher for a lifetime of personal and professional success.

The One Degree Difference will clearly demonstrate the influence we all have in providing the foundation for students to compartmentalize their future and identify their unique qualities. It takes a teacher to use the One Degree Difference to bring out the One Degree Difference in their students.
