WITN's Teacher of the Week for Wednesday, October 2nd is Jami Dickerson of Eastern Elementary in Greenville.
Dickerson currently teaches 3rd grade at Eastern.
She earned her Bachelor's degree in elementary education from East Carolina University, and has been teaching for six years now- all of them at Eastern Elementary.
Dickerson says her passion for teaching is what drives her everyday.
"It's not just a job," said Dickerson. "I look forward to going in each day, watching the kids grow."
Teaching may just be in Dickerson's blood; her mother was in the classroom as a teacher for 30 years.
