Teachers of TN: Ayana Fletcher-Tyson

“I was lucky enough to have an absolutely wonderful K-12 experience at my school in Memphis, and my teachers were definitely a major part of that. As I prepared for college and choosing my path, I knew that I wanted to be able to pass on that experience. I wanted to become the teacher I had seen – a teacher who believed academics were fun, that school was the cool place to be, and that learning and gaining knowledge was your ticket to anything you wanted to be and anywhere you wanted be.”

-Ayana Fletcher-Tyson, second grade teacher, East End Prep in Nashville
