Teachers of TN: Candace Hines

“As a child, school was my favorite place to be. Along the way I had several educators invest in me and spark my interest to become an educator. Being a first-generation college student and graduating with honors is something that I do not take lightly. I feel that it is my destiny to be an educator, cultivating the next generation of students to keep the cycle going; equipping them to conquer their dreams and achieve anything they put their mind to. ”

—Candace Hines, kindergarten teacher, the Achievement School District
