When Grace was in the fifth grade, she had a teacher who would read to her right before lunch. The stories were always about traveling, and one story in particular gave her the inspiration to travel - the Great Wall of China. She says, “My fifth grade teacher reading me the stories is what inspired me to become such a traveler.” When she graduated from high school, she moved on to attend Averett University in Danville, Virginia for two years. She then transferred to Florida State University in Tallahassee, FL. She graduated with a Bachelor’s Degree in Psychology and she also received her Minor is Sociology. “I was interested mainly in children, and I loved psychology so I went for it,” says Grace. After graduating she decided to teach young children, so from 1954–1958 she taught in Chattanooga Public Schools. Then she decided to follow one of her dreams, traveling. She made a career out of teaching English in foreign countries like, China and four other countries around the world. “They were so eager to learn our English language in China, which made it a ball to teach. I love the Chinese, they have a special place in my heart because they seem to welcome Americans," says Grace.
