Ms. Sheppard was nominated by Perry Ogletree who said, “I am a mentor for the Team America Rocketry Challenge (TARC) and assist with the NASA Amateur Radio on the International Space Station (ARISS). Over the past three years I have worked closely with Ms. Sheppard to enhance the experience for her students in STEM activities. She is an example of a science teacher who goes well beyond the usual to provide her students with an exciting experience.”
Perry continued, “Tammy’s application of science and challenges she provides her students have achieved a state of excitement beyond any I have ever seen in the great many schools I have visited.
She has been instrumental in shaping the futures of many students who have gone on to careers in science and engineering. Ms. Sheppard deserves this award as well as many others.”
Each week during the Titans’ season, submissions are reviewed to find exceptional teachers. The winning teachers receive a $400 gift basket full of supplies for their classroom and two tickets to see a Tennessee Titans home game. A new winner is announced every Tennessee Titans game and at the end of the season a ‘Teacher of the Year’ is selected from the Teacher of the Week winners.
