Class Act: Jim Pearson Elementary in Alex City

Posted: Updated:

When you're in Ms. Gina Abernathy's class, she can promise you two things.  You will have fun, and you will learn at the same time.     "I've been teaching 18 years, kindergarten and first grade, they're so honest, energetic, and willing to learn," said Abernathy.  She's this week's Class Act.

A grandparent nominated her for the award, saying her grandson was struggling in class, but now she has him loving school and getting good grades.   "I really do want school to be fun for them.   We can play games and they might not realize it, but they're learning and having fun."

So what keeps her coming back year after year for almost two decades.    "I just can't describe the feeling I get when they have that 'ah ha' moment.  It's very exciting."

Congratulations Ms. Gina Abernathy from Jim Pearson Elementary School in Alex City, you're this week's Class Act.
