Marla Hyatt is beginning her 13th year at the head of the class. After she began her career in Washington County, Tennessee, she’s spent the last 5 years at Mountain View Elementary.
Hyatt is the 2nd-grade teacher at Mountain View Elementary. She credits her first-grade teacher Mary Beth Dillenger at Lamar Elementary for being a strong influence on her as a student, now she wants to have that same impact on her classes.
Hyatt says the 2nd grade is unique because the students are not babies, but still young enough to have an excitement to learn.
“They have that internal thing that we want to do well and succeed and these children. When they do succeed they are ready to cheer and jump and clap and they want to make each other feel good and encourage each other,” said Hyatt.
Congratulations to Marla Hyatt. This week’s Educator of the Week.
