Retired Marine master sergeant teaches special ed

Lee Benjamin spent 27 years in the Marines, returned to school and now teaches children with severe emotional disturbances. After being abandoned by his father and left to take care of five younger siblings, Benjamin acted out in school until mentored by patient male teachers.
