The WVVA-Cole Chevy Teacher of the Month for September is Paula Sparks, a teach at Tazewell Middle School.

We surprised Mrs. Sparks during eighth-grade English class to present her with the award.

Sparks told us she is a breast cancer survivor, and was out of school for much of the last school year while battling the disease.

She says here 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. They get me up in the morning," Sparks said.

Sparks has been teaching for 15 years. She has previously taught at Graham High School, Graham Middle School and in McDowell County.
