This week, leading up to Mother’s Day, we’re sharing the stories of some moms who work on our campus. Rachel Simmons, a UT grad who teaches deaf and hard-of-hearing preschoolers in Georgia, remembers the wonderful—and sometimes awkward—experience of having her mom, Senior Lecturer Brenda Stephenson, as a teacher in the College of Education, Health, and Human Sciences.
This week, leading up to Mother’s Day, we’re sharing the stories of some moms who work on our campus. Nursing Professor and HITS Lab Co-Director Tami Wyatt grew up knowing she wanted to be a nurse. Her daughter, Rachael, was determined to be anything but a nurse—until she got to UT. Now Rachael, who graduated last year, is a NICU nurse in Chattanooga, and she says it makes her happy to know that people think she’s just like her mom.
