New Teacher Spotlight

Andrea Hankins - Third Grade Teacher


My name is Andrea Hankins and this is my first year teaching! I am so blessed to be at such an amazing school for my first year of teaching! I became a teacher to really make a difference in my students' lives. I think that one of the greatest things about being a teacher is seeing my students succeed in different ways every day in the classroom. Fall is my favorite season because that means that it's football time in Tennessee! I spend my Saturdays cheering on the VOLS!
