While a student at Michigan State University, Kellie Dean took a summer job as a substitute teacher at the Marvin Beekman Center in Lansing, a school that focuses on students with physical and mental disabilities.

It was meant to last only a couple of months, but that job would change the former MSU football player's life. When he returned to school that fall, Dean changed his career plan from physical therapy to special education.

He had found his life's calling.
