Prattville, AL (WSFA) - When you ask Mandi Collins at Prattville Intermediate School why she wanted to be a teacher, her answer is simple. "I decided to become a teacher not just because of academics, but to inspire them to reach goals later in life," Collins said.
Ms. Collins has spent the last 5 years in the classroom. "Getting this award is an honor, but I get an honor every day seeing the kids smile or seeing the light bulb go on." A student nominated Ms. Collins for the award. The student said she always helps the kids improve their grades, and she makes things fun at the same time. "I think being a teacher is more than just assigning problem from a book, its getting in there and finding about their goals and helping them achieve them."
She's helping kids reach their goals every day. Miss Mandi Collins from Prattville Intermediate School is a real "Class Act".
