UNICOI COUNTY, TN (WJHL) – Jenny Rice spent 11 years teaching 5th grade, now she’s in her second year educating 6th-grade students at Unicoi County Middle School.
Rice teaches Reading and Language Arts. She’s spent her entire career in the Unicoi County School System.
She says she loves the relationships she builds in the classroom and those light bulb moments when a student finally grasps a concept.
It all starts with the family atmosphere she creates in her classroom.
“My biggest thing is letting the children know that I’m there for them and that we have relationships that they can come into a safe classroom and know that there is something each day exciting that we are going to learn,” said Rice.
Congratulations to Jenny Rice. She is this week’s Educator of the Week.
