Marcia Dauzat's job as a school teacher at Louisiana's Pitkin High School is a labor of love. 

She recently celebrated her 80th birthday in the classroom, where she was worked more 59 years. 

"I enjoy my job, I love coming to work," says Marcia Dauzat.

Ms. Dauzat's dream of being a teacher started when she was 21 years old. During her first year she taught Jeanice Lambright, who for the past 28 years has been her co-worker.

"She has taught my husband, she taught my three children and now she is teaching my two grandsons," says Jeanice Lambright.

"She taught me in kindergarten, third grade, fourth grade and I'm currently in twelfth and she is my teacher for fine arts," says Kelsey Thomas.

Dauzat says her job is a labor of love.

"I'm not interested in the money part. I like to teach and I like for other people to learn," says Marcia Dauzat.
