Stiner retires

Susan Stiner and her grandson Peck rest after picking vegetables from the garden. The two plan to spend more time together now that Susan has retired. – SUBMITTED

Jefferson County High math teacher Susan Stiner, who just retired from a 42-year teaching career, never intended to teach in the first place.

“I was a junior at UT in the nursing program when my best friend had a terrible car accident,” she recalls.  “She was laid up in her hospital bed in serious condition and I watched our professors and fellow students come in to visit and drop off loads of homework so she wouldn’t get behind. Right then and there, I decided being a nurse was not for me.”
