Rebekah Bowen of Cochran Wins "My Teacher is Tops"

Rebekah Bowen, a Math teacher at Bleckley County Middle School in Cochran was surprised Wednesday when 13WMAZ came into her classroom with a camera to tell her she was this week's "My Teacher is Tops" winner.

Bowen was nominated by her student, Lindee Knowles, who wrote a letter to 13WMAZ.  "I would like to nominate her becuase she is the nicest person you'll ever meet," she wrote in the letter. "She makes everything in math fun. For every subject we learn, she will have some kind of song to go to the beat of what we're learning."

Lindee says before going to middle school, Math was not one of her favorite subjects, but that changed because of Mrs. Bowen.  Bowen previously taught high school Math and Science before coming to Bleckley for her first year.
