CLINTON (WATE) - Many students across East Tennessee returned to class Monday. Many more students start school later this week.

Even though they may be nervous about going back, they will not be alone. There are also several new teachers starting their careers.

Two of those new teachers are at Anderson County High School.

Donovan Harrington is a first year biology teacher. He just graduated from the University of Tennessee.

"I'm just excited to have students," said Harrington. "That was always me growing up. I was always the one helping my fellow students when I was in high school."

Carla Pelizzari is also starting her career as a teacher. She is a new Spanish teacher at the high school.

"I've always had a love for teaching," said Pelizzari. "It's been in my veins. My grandparents were teachers. My grandfather was actually the first male teacher in Oak Ridge."

Both teachers say they are excited about seeing their classrooms full of students and look forward to teaching them in the year to come.

"I hope they gain an understanding of what it means to construct scientific knowledge, and how the scientific community develops and understands basic knowledge and theories," said Harrington.

"I guess showing the kids the love and appreciation for other cultures and languages," said Pelizzari.

Both teachers say they have worked hard in getting their classes ready, and can not wait for the first day of school.

Monday was registration day at Anderson County High School.

The first day of classes for Anderson County students is Wednesday.
