MONTGOMERY, AL (WSFA) -
Mister Curtic Rice is good with numbers. He started enjoying math at an early age and eventually earned a scholarship to Alabama A&M University. When he graduated he went straight to the classroom to pass on his love for numbers. "A lot of people are afraid of math," Rice said. "If I can reach them and make them feel confident math is not scary, it should be easy."
Mr. Rice has been at Georgia Washington for 6 years and been teaching for a total of 15 years. The parent who nominated him for the Class Act award says he is a real role model who helps his students prepare for the future and strive to do their best. "I want them to be successful. I'm not just going to give them handouts. I want to know why they act a certain way and if they have an attitude why, I want to know what they want in life."
It looks like this equation is working out just fine. Mr. Curtis Rice from Georgia Washington Middle School in Montgomery, you're this week's Class Act.
