Macon East Teacher a Class Act

MONTGOMERY CO., AL (WSFA) -

The students are lined up in Mrs. Ashley Bocchino's class at Macon East Montgomery Academy.  The 5th grade teacher has been at Macon East for 12 years and has a passion for helping students.   "I always loved kids," Bocchino said.  "Even as a teenager I'd chose jobs with kids. I taught gymnastics, taught nursery school, anything with kids I wanted to do."

A group of students, parents, and teachers nominated her for our Class Act award.  One parent says, she's a refreshing change for a teacher and really does understand that every child learns differently.   "We sit down and we do it together until they understand it. If they don't we meet before school and after school so nobody gets left behind."

She was flattered and surprised by the nomination.  Congratulations Mrs. Ashley Bocchino from Macon East Academy, this week's Class Act.
