Teachers of TN: Stephanie Jenkins-Inyart

“I enjoy connecting real-life stories about my life or family to something I’m teaching. When I was in the fourth grade my teacher constantly told us stories of her life, and I honestly can remember every single one. I feel that teaching is more than just learning about the Revolutionary War or sound waves. By sharing my life with my students it allows me to connect with them. I want others to know that I not only teach my students but also want to impact their lives by the connections I make with them.”
