    Anderson County High School teacher Jessica Harley got one B in high school: in Bridget Wells’ English class.
    “I struggled in her class,” Harley, who described herself as an A student in high school, said with a laugh.
    “Oh, it was traumatic. She [Wells] knows it was traumatic.”
    Wells — who was teaching English in the early 2000s when Harley was a high school student at ACHS — pushed her students to be better, Harley said.
    Now Harley is back, not as Wells’ student, but as her colleague.
