This week's Class Act is Ms. Valarie Forster from Montgomery Academy. She teaches Spanish class. Ms. Forster has been at MA for 7 years and spent 33 years in the classroom overall. She has a real passion for foreign language. "I used to have to tell people why they needed Spanish, I don't have to do that anymore," Forster said.
The person who nominated her for the award says her passion for Spanish is second to none, and she makes learning a foreign language fun. She realizes every student is different. "I think every child can learn, you just have to find the right way to reach them. Every day is a new day and you have to throw out yesterday and start fresh."
