JOHNSON CITY, TN (WJHL) – Lisa Armentrout went to school at Sulpher Springs and she’s spent 30 of her 35 years teaching there.
She says the school feels like home.
“My whole family graduated from Sulpher Springs School. My mother, my father, my brother, my aunts, my uncles all attended Sulpher Springs and graduated here. I attended Sulpher Springs, to get to come back here and spend a majority of my life here at Sulpher Springs School is really special,” said Armentrout.
Armentrout is the seventh and eighth-grade math teacher at Sulpher Springs. She truly admires education and children. In her three-plus decades, she says you to have love children in order to teach.
In addition, to her duties in the classroom, she also serves as the track and cross-country coach.
Armentrout says she likes to take the same lessons both inside and outside of school.
“‘Never give up!’ is my philosophy in my classroom. I tell them to keep trying. It doesn’t matter what you do — just keep trying,” said Armentrout.
Congratulations to Lisa Armentrout, this week’s Educator of the Week.
