JACKSBORO, 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 teacher is Pamala Angel, who goes above and beyond for her students.
She teaches seventh grade math at Jacksboro Middle School and has been teaching in Campbell County for fifteen years.
According to Angel, it was after she became a mother that she was inspired to work with children.
“I have always been driven to try to make our community a better place, and I find that through education, I can hopefully make a meaningful difference,” Angel said.
Her favorite part of being an educator is building bonds with students and their families and trying to “make the growing-up process just a little more bearable.”
She said it’s her fellow co-workers that make the hard days better.
“Education comes with many hard days and unpleasant situations that we all have to deal with but, the staff and co-workers at JMS lifts one another up and supports each other on a daily basis. Without my fellow teachers, some days would be too much to handle.”
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.
