LAFOLLETTE, 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 Betty Beter. She has been an educators for 38 years.

“It is in this educational setting that I find my greatest joy. My students continue to inspire and challenge me on a daily basis. Learning and achieving together with them has always been my motivation as well as the best part of what I do. Therefore, no plans to retire any time soon,” Beter said.
