Eclectic Teacher a Class Act

ECLECTIC, AL (WSFA) - Amanda Preskitt knows the hallways at Eclectic Elementary School very well.  The second grade teacher was once a student here.   "I teach with 3 teachers who taught me, so its kind of weird to now be on their level," Preskitt said.   "But I do have a lot of pride in my school."

Ms. Preskitt has been here for 3 years.   School leaders say she always finds clever ways to help the students learn.   "In October I would say "hocus pocus" and they would say everybody focus.   It was just a way to keep it on their level and have some fun."

Ms. Preskitt knows every one of her students has a chance to succeed.  "I think you have the ability to make a difference in a child's life, and when you see enormous growth, it can be emotional."

Ms. Amanda Preskitt from Eclectic Elementary School in Elmore County is a real Class Act.
