Excellent Educator: Wayne Powers Of Roseville Schools
ROSEVILLE, Minn. (WCCO) — This morning, the WCCO Morning Show is honoring another excellent educator in the metro who has gone above and beyond to make a difference in students’ lives.
This week, Edward Moody helped students honor Wayne Powers from Roseville-area schools.
Powers is the district’s cable service supervisor, helping middle and high school students learn what it takes to put on a daily newscast.
He also leads a team of Roseville students and alumni who cover school events live for local cable. They call him the “tech guru” of their schools.
Powers was nominated by Joey Stepnick, who was a student under Wayne in middle school. He’s now in his 20s and still doing television production.
“The kids that I work with have just made life so much more fun for me,” Powers said. “It’s not your normal teacher-student kind of thing. It’s first names. We joke around, but work pretty hard together.”
He’s been a teacher for about 30 years now.
You can nominate a deserving educator by going to the WCCO Morning Show’s Facebook page, telling us their name and why they should be WCCO’s Excellent Educator of the week.
