JACKSONVILLE-- It is Wednesday so that means it is time for our Teacher of the Week!

This week we are spotlighting kindergarten teacher Karen McCorvey at First Baptist Academy in downtown. Mrs. McCorvey has been teaching for around 24 years and says she loves teaching young children because they are so loving and so excited about learning everyday.

She says a good teacher is someone who is very passionate about the job and life-long learner as well.

"You can't just do the same old thing everyday. You have to do something new, whether it be reading the latest professional book and applying it to your teaching or even changing the classroom around. I changed the classroom around when I came in this morning, it makes it fun," says Mrs. McCorvey.

Mrs. McCorvey says the best advice she has ever gotten is if you feel burned out., take a workshop or a class and get some new ideas about teaching!

For her dedication to her students, Mrs. Karen McCorvey at First Baptist Academy is our Teacher of the Week!
