CARYVILLE, 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 April Campbell. She teaches at Caryville Elementary School.
Campbell grew up in Campbell County and has been teaching here for 14 years. She currently teaches math and social studies at Caryville Elementary School.
According to Campbell, she decided she wanted to be a teacher when she was in elementary school.
“I thought it would be something I would love to do. My favorite part of being a teacher is helping students succeed and reach their full potential,” Campbell said.
She said something positive that helps keep her going is “encouragement” from her administration and coworkers and watching her students “begin to understand a concept or skill or gain confidence.”
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.
