In this week’s Teacher of the Week segment, Mrs. Tytianna Harrell, who is a vibrant instructor at New Berlin Elementary shares her journey.

“In 2004, I lost two children and I had written it off and said I’m not going to have any kids and I said if I can’t have one, I’ll teach a thousand of them,” said Harrell.

Ms. Harrell has been in education over 10 years and she teaches her students fun, interactive lessons. She says her school fosters a great environment to grow.

“I love the students and I love everything about New Berlin, and our slogan is nothing but excellence and it shows in every teacher and in every classroom every day,” said Mrs. Harrell.
