Posted by: Judd Davis - bio | email

MONTGOMERY, AL (WSFA) -   When it comes to enthusiasm, Mrs. Nicole Pinkham is 100% all in.   She's a 5th grade teacher at the new Wilson Elementary School in Montgomery and she's this week's Class Act.     "I really enjoy getting to know the kids individually, and to see them excited about learning makes it worth it," Pinkham said.

Mrs. Pinkham has spent the last 15 years in education, most of it in the classroom.     She says 5th grade is the perfect fit and she uses all kinds of techniques to help the kids learn.    "I like them to work together, a lot of cooperative learning, we work in groups with lots of things going on and that gets them excited.   "There's nothing more rewarding than seeing a student who might be struggling, and then they understand something.   "If I  have the opportunity to help them get it, there's nothing more rewarding."

She deserves a little reward of her own.    Congratulations Mrs. Nicole Pinkham, you're a real Class Act.
