TUSKEGEE, AL (WSFA) -

When you look up the word teacher in the dictionary, the definition says “a person who helps others to acquire knowledge, competences or values." One educator at George Washington Carver Elementary School does that, and she does it all with a warm heart and a bright smile. Her name is Katrina Huguley.

Huguley isn't like a regular teacher. Her determination, dedication, and passion all help fuel her energetic spirit. 

"I'm the kind of teacher that everything I do has a rhythm or a beat to it, and I have found that works for my students and they love it," Huguley. "I don't believe in holding my students back. If you make it fun when you introduce it, they can learn.  If you introduce it to them now, when they get into the next grade it won't be such a struggle for them."

For 20 years she has been working with youngster and helping them build a strong education foundation. 

And her drive to prep her kids for the future is not going unnoticed. Not only was she recognized by her school as the "Teacher of the Year," her fellow educators praise Huguley for how she engages and excited her students about learning.

"It makes me feel good, because when you work so hard and your co-workers thank you and congratulate you on what you do, it makes you feel good and it makes you feel like you're work is not going unnoticed," Huguley said. 

Congratulations Mrs. Huguley - you're this week's Class Act!
