Teachers of TN: Kim Castleman

“As a seasoned educator I have had the privilege of seeing many of the students I’ve taught over the years become adults and take their place within the community. It proves that the long hours, hard work, and sacrifices are worth it. I’m especially proud when a former student joins the education profession and becomes my colleague. Teaching is and always will be my first love. What a joy to see that love being continued through those that I’ve had the honor of teaching.  That joy will multiply many times next year as my son becomes a Tennessee teacher. ”

—Kim Castleman, second grade teacher, McKenzie Special School District
