A Roseville high school teacher is being forced to make a painful decision: She can either quit work to keep her medical benefits or go bankrupt trying to keep doing what she loves.
A skiing accident made Jenny Weast a quadriplegic when she was 16. Weast has extremely limited mobility, but in 30 years, she's become an accomplished math teacher and cheerleading coach at Oakmont High School.
"She's your best friend, your second mom, your mentor, all at the same time," Oakmont senior Sydney Spitzer said.
Weast said her students are the reason she gets up in the morning.
"You know you've got a purpose," she said. "That's what these kids do to me. It gives me a purpose."
