Meet September WVVA-Cole Chevy teacher of the month

Posted:

Our WVVA-Cole Chevy Teacher Of The Month is Paula Sparks.  She's a teacher at Tazewell Middle School.

We surprised Mrs. Sparks during eighth grade English to present the award.

Sparks told us she is a breast cancer survivor.

She was out of school from Christmas of last year until this school year because of the cancer.

She says her students give her the energy to come to school.

"I love my kids. I love being here. I care about my kids and I want to see them succeed and I think they get me up. They get me up in the morning," says Sparks.

Sparks has been teaching for 15 years.

She has taught at Graham high school, Graham Middle School and in the McDowell County School System.
