 (ABC 6 News) -- Tammy Mammel keeps learning fun.

This, as she belts out, "this girl is on fire," by Alicia Keys to one of her students.

Besides singing, Tammy Mammel teaches English at Willow Creek Middle School in Rochester.

"It's in everything, you don't just write and read it, it carries over into every subject matter," she says, "it's never the same thing twice, theres always a new opportunity, its just a really fun job."

A job she became interested in as a student herself. "When I was a freshman in highschool I can remember in my grammar class, most of my classmates were bored to death, and i'm sitting there thinking I could do that," says Mammel.

Now 23 years later, she's still doing it.

"It's a rewarding job, it's got a lot of rewards that money can't buy."
