JACKSBORO, TN (WLAF) – It takes a village as the saying goes, to keep Campbell County’s more than 5,000 students on the right education track. Teaching assistants play a vital role in the education of students and for that reason, WLAF is continuing its salute to educators by recognizing teaching assistants throughout the county school district. This week kicks off with a shout out to the teaching assistants at Campbell County High School.
These hard working individuals are the “unsung heroes for teachers and students alike,” according to Chris Sutphin, head of CCHS Special Education.
“They assist in a positive learning environment. They are always willing to go above and beyond to meet anyones needs and they are definitely deserving of recognition,” Sutphin said.
Campbell County High School teaching assistants include Sheila Davis, who has been with the school system 12 years; Becky Brummitt, who has 27 years with the school; Scott Webb, who has 8 years with CCHS; Vickie Williams also has 8 years; Kristen Myers, with 2 years, DJ Coker, with 1 year; and Walt Sutton with 4 years.
According to Brummitt, the teaching assistants “have more fun than anybody in the building.” (WLAF NEWS PUBLISHED – 11/22/2022-6AM)
