Wilcox Academy Teacher a Class Act

CAMDEN, AL (WSFA) - When the bell rings at Wilcox Academy in Camden, one thing you can count on for sure, teacher Judy Powe will be ready to work.  "I still love it every day," Powe said.  She must, she's been in the classroom for more than 40 years.

"I just enjoy teaching the students.  Eventually I've taught some of their children, even their grandchildren."  Miss Powe teaches accelerated math for 5th-8th grade.   "I spend my summer coming up with new ways to teach things.  I try to do things that are current.  Recently we've seen some big alligators caught around here, so we found their total weight, just simple addition."

Speaking of addition.  We can add Mrs. Powe's name to the AISA Hall of Fame this year.   Just another award for a teacher with a whole lot of experience, with the passion and energy to go along with it."

Congratulations Mrs. Judy Powe from Wilcox Academy in Camden.  You're this week's Class Act.
