Mooresville Graded School District Superintendent Mark A. Edwards — honored last year as one of the country’s best administrators — described walking into a supermarket with his teenage son while the two discussed whether the boy had an interest in teaching. The evening chat was interrupted when Edwards recognized one of his teachers mopping an aisle, a second job she held after school hours to make ends meet, Edwards said.
