Teachers of TN: Katie Vaughn

“On hard days I stay motivated because I know my students need art. For some of the students I teach, the art room might be the only place they get to experience success in school. They might not be the best student in math class, or the star soccer player in the gym, but if I can help them experience success in the art room it makes my job totally worth it. All students should be able to experience success. I firmly believe art keeps kids in school.”

—Katie Vaughn, elementary visual arts teacher, Tipton County Schools
