DUFF, TN (WLAF) – We’ve all had that teacher who inspired us or helped in some way. That’s why WLAF and Eagle Tire Pros salute one of our hard working educators with a weekly feature. 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..

This week’s featured teacher is Kindera Graham. 

She teaches first grade at Wynn Elementary School and is in her fifth year as an educator. Graham attended Wynn, as did her husband Curtis and eventually their two daughters.  

This week’s featured teacher is Kindera Graham. 

Graham is from “a small area called Lick Creek in LaFollette.”

When she’s not teaching, she enjoys spending time with her family and her little dog Benson.

She attended school at Wynn, Campbell County High and received her teaching degree from Tennessee Tech University.

According to Graham, education has always been a “pursuit” for her. 

“I had a love of learning as a student that has transitioned into a love of learning as a teacher,” Graham said.
