TEACHER OF THE WEEK: Sherleen Sheppard of Martin County

WITN's Teacher of the Week for Wednesday, March 12th, 2014 is Sherleen Sheppard from Edna Andrews Elementary School in Martin County.

Mrs. Sheppard has been teaching for 40 years in all, but said second grade has been one of her favorite grades to instruct.

After teaching kindergarten and first grade in Brooklyn, New York for 20 years, the Williamston native came home to continue teaching.

"All children can learn. All children are stars," said Sheppard. "They just twinkle differently."

Congratulations, Mrs. Sheppard!
