JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- Her students nominated her as our Teacher of the Week for her fun teaching philosophy that includes dressing as a nutty Professor!
"I try to keep the classroom fun and interesting," Kelly Rom said. "I kind of dress up in different outfits."
Ms. Rom keeps the environment of her first grade classroom at St. Matthew's Catholic School interactive.
She's known to get into character to help her kids learn.
"The crazy scientist comes out and the scientist talks in a different accent," Rom said.
She's been at the school for 14 years and says watching the students grow from learning to tie shoe laces to graduation is a big reward.
