Veteran teacher named teacher of the year in Clinton

A veteran teacher was named "Teacher of the Year," on Thursday in Clinton. Jackie Massey teaches fifth grade at Eastside Elementary school. She was embraced by her students after she was surprised with the recognition. 

Massey has thirty-three years of teaching experience and says the children are her inspiration. Massey says she's honored to be selected out of so many other teachers.

"It's very humbling. I work in a building where there are incredible ladies and gentlemen who work everyday to give their best to children. I work in a community that is so supportive, my administration, anything I need or want they're always there," says Massey.

Massey was also surprised with some goodies from Chick-Fil-A. She says her family is her strongest support system, and she's thankful to her administration.
