Amy McAmis is this week’s Educator of the Week

Local

Amy McAmis has spent nearly her entire life in Greene County.  The North Greene graduate has beebn a teacher in the community she grew up in for the past 22 years.   ABC Tri-Cities Kasey Marler tells us, her commitment makes her this week’s Educator of the Week.

Amy McAmis beams when she speaks of the impact she’s had on her community. She’s spent two decades in education teaching the

 Kindergarten and first grade grades.

She’s the first grade teacher at Baileyton. A school she was once a student at, now the place she’s

worked for 17 years.  She’s been recognized by her peers, but it’s most important to her that’s she is

recognized by her families and students.  She’s says teaching is a total team effort.  McAmis adds 

she is  demanding  of her 17 students.  And they respond.  It’s the growth she sees in the students

that keeps er going year after year. It’s amazing when they come in they are dependent on teachers. As

the year goes on the goal is to transfer that from I do, we do, to they do. They have  to be pushed but

when that light bulb goes off  that’s what it is all about,  Said McAmis.

Congratulations to Amy McAmis. This week’s Educator of the week.
