Teachers of TN: Renae Byrd

“I get immense joy and satisfaction working with adolescents and witnessing their transformation from unsure 14- and 15-year olds to far more confident and capable 17- and 18-year-olds and am eager to provide to them the advocacy and assistance they deserve as they make this journey. I love the fact that my work as a high school counselor is different every day and appreciate the challenge that comes with this ever-changing role as I support student success in academic, social/emotional, and college/career realms.”

-Renae Byrd, high school counselor in Hamblen County Schools
