MONTGOMERY, AL (WSFA) - It's no secret, Ms. Yvette Davis loves her job as a teacher. "I think teaching is the most rewarding occupation I could have ever chosen," Davis said. It runs in the family. "My mom teaches. I came from a long line of teachers. I've done a lot of things, been in the military, but I got the teaching bug, and that's what I want to do."
She's been with the Montgomery public school system for the last 7-years. Right now she teaches 6th grade language arts at Johnnie Carr Middle School. It's the perfect grade level for her. "It comes with a lot of hormonal changes but 6th graders are still innocent and are on their way to growing up."
A student nominated her for the Class Act award saying, Ms. Davis is the best teacher she has ever had and she pushes them learn more everyday in a fun and safe environment. Ms. Davis knows that every student is different. "I try to connect with all my students. I believe they all can learn and sometimes in different ways, so I try to figure out how each one learns, and then do their plan accordingly."
She has a great plan for success and the students are on board every day. Congratulations Ms. Yvette Davis from Johnnie Carr Middle School, this week's Class Act.
