JOHNSON CITY, TN (WJHL) – Jeannie Nanney went to school at Westview High School at Crockett and college at ETSU with a Master’s degree from Tusculum.
She’s also spent her entire 37 years in the Washington County School District.
Mrs. Nanney has been at Grandview Elementary since it opened 10 years ago. After starting as a self-contained teacher with all the subjects, she’s been the 44th-grade math teacher for the past half decade.
She says the technology has changed over the years. But for the most part the students have stayed the same — and that’s what’s kept her so excited about teaching 4th graders.
“I love fourth -grade of all the grades that I could teach. They’re old enough to want to please their teacher and still like their teacher, but yet I don’t have to do so much like tie their shoes and wipe their mouth. Fourth-grade is just my favorite age. Nine and ten-year-old students are just interesting to me,” says Nanney.
Congratulations to Jeannie Nanney: This week’s Educator of the Week.
