JOHNSON CITY, TN (WJHL) – Whitney Pearson never let difficulties in math deter her love of numbers and now she uses that same perseverance to inspire her students at Mountain View Elementary.
Pearson is in her 5th year at the head of the class. She teachers math and science at Mountain View in Johnson City.
She started out as a 2nd-grade teacher and has spent the last 3years with third-grade students.
Pearson says she’s always had a passion for teaching and watching people learn.
“My family member were great learners. I got to watch them coach and lead. They also taught. [When you] see them later in life and see that connection, you are a part of the bigger picture,” said Pearson.
Congratulations to Whitney Pearson, this week’s Educator of the Week.
