JACKSBORO, 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 Stacey Brown. She teaches at Jacksboro Middle School.

Brown was born and raised in LaFollette. She is married to Randy Brown and they have two children, Aaron Brown and Olivia McKamey and a son-in-law, Kelly McKamey.

An educator for 14 years total, Brown has taught 6th grade math at Jacksboro Middle School for 13.5 years.

“I knew I wanted to be a teacher since I was a child; the desire came from the Lord, my savior,” Brown said.

She had several teachers throughout the years that stood out in her life and encouraged her path in education. 

“In particular, my sixth grade teacher Anne Dubose inspired me,” Brown said.

According to Brown, her favorite part of teaching is when a “student who has previously stated he or she isn’t good at or doesn’t like math comes to realize through hard work and effort they can become a successful math student. I am thankful to get to be a very small and brief part of their lives,” Brown 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 NEWS PUBLISHED – 05/12/2022-6AM)
