Ms. O'Dell has been in the classroom for 8 years.    She says she has a great connection with her students.    "We spend so much time together, it's like I'm their mom, their nurse, and their counselor when they're here.   I try to be considerate and think about their feelings.  I don't ever want them to be afraid to think outside the box." 

She has them thinking, learning and have a great time everyday at school.  Congratulations Ms. Holly O'Dell, you're a real Class Act.
