Nancy Sumpter

Ever since I can remember I have always wanted to be a teacher. I had a First Grade teacher in grade school who let me come to her room during my lunch and recess time to help her with her students and that greatly encouraged me to work towards my dream of becoming a teacher! Because my parents did not have the money to send me to college, I worked several jobs and put myself through school. It took me a long time but I persevered and got my BS and MS degrees in Education! I loved being a teacher for 20 plus years working with my students and treasure those many years and students!
