Teachers of TN: Greg Lemmons

“The greatest thing I can do for my students is to prepare them for their future postsecondary or career success. I believe CTE teachers have an advantage in this because we came from industry to the classroom. We can create lessons that are rooted from relevant, real-world experience. Being able to teach students through the lens of someone from industry allows students to understand why we are learning a particular topic and how it will apply to them in their postsecondary education and career.”
