One word at a time, her first graders are learning how to read. Ms. Kerri Shaffer from Head Elementary School in Montgomery is this week's Class Act. "I have 3 little ones at home and they like to have fun, so I like to do that with my students, we try to have fun and learn while doing it," Shaffer said.
You can feel the excitement in her classroom. When she asks a question the kids hands fly up to answer them. Ms. Shaffer has taught here for 4-years and been a teacher for 10-years overall. For her it's a give and take relationship with her first graders. "I put a lot of responsibility on them, so I let them put the responsibility on themselves to work and do their best."
