Posted by: Judd Davis - bio | email

Eclectic, Alabama (WSFA 12 News) - Every day these students take a trip around the globe, thanks to their teacher,  Mr. Walt Porter.   Porter teaches geography at Eclectic Middle School, and its a school he knows very well.   "My father and mother taught school here, so it's kind of in my blood a little bit," Porter said.

Porter was a student here too.  But now he's on the other side of the classroom.   He has taught here for the last 10 years.   "The younger children, the 7th graders are a challenge, but they keep you on your toes.   You have to be firm but let them know you care about them, if you can do that you can get them to do a lot of things."

Congratulations to Mr. Walt Porter from Eclectic Middle School, this week's Class Act.
