Tim Hatlestad works on one of his pieces in his garage shop, May 29, 2020, in North Mankato, Minn. The third grade teacher turned his woodworking hobby into a lucrative side business. When Hatlestad began woodworking, he was the same age as the third-grade students he teaches at Bridges Community School in North Mankato. A lesson that he often tells his students is this: If you want to get better at something, start small and work your way up. (Pat Christman/The Free Press via AP)
