DUFF, TN (WLAF) – Teachers make a difference in their students lives each and every day. For many students, having a teacher, counselor or principal who cares and goes that extra mile can be the difference in a successful education and graduation. We’ve all had that educator who has 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 Linda Collins. 

Collins is the interventionist for Wynn Elementary School where she has been teaching for 30 years. She is a Campbell County native.

Linda Collins is Eagle Tire Pros and WLAF’s teacher of the week.

According to Collins, she has always enjoyed learning and was “blessed” by many educators of her own that inspired her career and fostered a “love of learning.”

“They shared with me that an education can open doors and take you anywhere you want to go,” Collins said, adding she hoped she had shared this same message with her students over the years. 

To nominate a teacher for the Eagle Tire Pros teacher of the week honors, please send your nomination to wlaf@1450wlaf.com.

She said the support of her family and friends and her faith in God helps her stay focused, but the “most rewarding part of teaching is the smile on a child’s face and the sparkle in their eyes when they know they have it.”

“That excitement is contagious and heartwarming,” Collins 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. To nominate a teacher for teacher of the week honors, please send your nomination to wlaf@1450wlaf.com.  (WLAF NEWS PUBLISHED – 03/17/2022-6AM)
