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 Felicia (Baird) Wilson. She is from Clinton, Tennessee and currently serves as an English Language Arts Interventionist at Caryville Elementary School.
Wilson has had an amazing 37 year career, with the last 27 years spent at Caryville Elementary. During that time she has influenced hundreds of Campbell County kids!
She has also taught at Stinking Creek School, Wynn School, Jacksboro Elementary School and West LaFollette Elementary school.
According to Wilson, it was her mother who inspired her to go to college and the “Lord led her to a career in teaching.”
“I have been blessed to teach and influence hundreds of children in our county,” Wilson said.
Her favorite part of teaching is watching children grow and learn new things.
“To see a child grasp a difficult concept we have worked on together is a true blessing,” Wilson said.
The Lord is one of her main positives, even on the hard days; as is her family and the reward of knowing she has “in some small way, made a difference in a child’s life.”
“Running into former students out in the community that I have taught over the last 37 years makes the reward of teaching a worthwhile life choice,” Wilson 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 firstname.lastname@example.org
