MADISON, Ala. (WHNT) - Lee-Cassie Walls has only been teaching for two years, but she is already proving to be a natural at the job, and her performance in the classroom netted her this week's Tools for Teachers spotlight and 319 dollars to spend on educational tools as she sees fit.
Despite her teaching acumen, education wasn't Ms. Walls' original major at Auburn University. It was her boyfriend- now husband- who recognized her innate abilities. Obviously, he made the right call.
"I love kids. I can’t walk past a kid without smiling at them or talking to them," Ms. Walls told us. "I want to see these guys learn and I want to see the things click in their heads."
Ms. Walls was nominated by one of her students. If you know a worthy teacher, coach, principal, or aide, tell us about them through the Tools for Teachers nomination form.
