JACKSBORO, TN (WLAF) – Teachers make a difference in their students lives each and every day. For many students, having a teacher who cares and goes that extra mile can be the difference in a successful education and graduation. We’ve all had that teacher who inspired us or helped in some way. That’s why WLAF and Eagle Tire Pros salute all of our hard working educators with a weekly feature.
This week’s featured teacher is Campbell County High School’s Brad Honeycutt.
He was born and raised in Campbell County. After graduating from the University of Tennessee in 2004, Honeycutt moved to Indiana to work for Lowe’s Home Improvement Distribution. He also served as an insurance agent for Farm Bureau for several years as well. He received his Master’s of Arts in Teaching in 2010 and has now taught for 12 years.
He is married to Lindsay Honeycutt who also teaches third grade at Caryville Elementary School. They have three children, Maelee, Grady, and Evie.
Honeycutt said he “always wanted to teach and coach so he could help kids out and hopefully pay back some of the help” he received from others in academics and sports while growing up.
After beginning his career in education, he spent his first four years teaching and coaching at Grace Christian Academy in Karns.
For the past eight years, he has taught at Campbell County High School where he coached girls basketball for seven of those eight years.
“My favorite part about teaching is relationship building with the students and my fellow faculty members. Campbell County High School is a great place to be,” Honeycutt said.
Every Thursday, WLAF’s Charlotte Underwood features the WLAF – Eagle Tire Pros teacher of the week. That educator also receives a free oil change from Eagle Tire Pros.
