Hawk Is 'Educator For A Day'

State Representative David Hawk, R-5th, of Greeneville, spent Thursday morning in a classroom at Greeneville Middle School as "Educator for a Day."

The "Educator for a Day" program is part of American Education Week celebrations, sponsored by the Tennessee Education Association (TEA).

The Greeneville Education Association (GEA) extended the invitation to Hawk and other lawmakers to allow them to experience school activities.

Hawk spent a portion of the day with seventh-grade students in Cindy Monroe's Language Arts class.

He explained some of his work with the Tennessee General Assembly and answered a few questions the students had about being a lawmaker.

Students then broke up into smaller groups, called learning communities, to complete their Language Arts assignments.

Hawk circulated from group to group, speaking with students, helping with their lessons as needed, and observing how classroom work is done.

"I'm honored to be here with our students, seeing what a day in the life of a teacher and a student is like," Hawk told The Greeneville Sun.

"We do such great work in our Greeneville and Greene County schools. It's a great benefit for me to see the work in progress."

Monroe said she was glad Hawk was able to visit her classroom as part of American Education Week.

"I really appreciate him fitting us into his really tight schedule," she said.

"With children of his own in school, he is already very knowledgeable about some of the roles of teachers -- even in the community, removed from their classrooms. I'm just really honored that he would choose to spend the day with us," Monroe said.

American Education Week began in 1921 as a partnership of the National Education Assocation and the American Legion, as a result of distress that a significant number of World War I draftees returning home from war were illiterate.

Since that time, American Education Week has been observed each year during the week prior to Thanksgiving.
