Growing up, Dave Sever was convinced he would never become a teacher.
Sever’s father was a teacher for 38 years, and from a distance Sever assumed the profession was time-consuming, stressful and low paying.
After he started studying to become an architect at Ball State University, he slowly started to change his mind. Finishing the architecture program would take at least five years plus summer school, which at the time sounded like an eternity. So he decided to work as a teacher for a few years before going back to college to become an architect.
