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 educator is Rachael Teague. She teaches Agriscience and Environmental Science at Campbell County High School and is in her third year of teaching. Teague is from “right here in Campbell County” and said she has “been blessed” to live here her whole life.
She is a CCHS graduate and it was one of her high school teachers that influenced her career path.
“Being a former Cougar myself, CCHS offers career technical education courses for students and I was very active in the agriculture courses. My FFA advisor, Eric Reynolds, saw something in me that I could not see for myself. He inspired me to become an educator and I pursued a degree in Agriculture Education at Tennessee Technological University,” Teague said.
According to Teague, her favorite part about teaching is the relationships formed with her students.
“This makes being a teacher worth it and keeps me going on the days that are very challenging. Oh, and lots of prayer and coffee help too!” Teague 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.
