HARVEST, Ala. — Coach Ben Stevenson teaches AP Government at Sparkman High School in Harvest.
"I love what I do," Coach Stevenson explains. "I cant imagine doing anything else I like working with the young people that we work with whether it be on the classroom or in the field. "I really enjoy the content that i teach so that makes it a lot easier."
Coach Stevenson does more than teach using the textbook or through lectures.
"I mean I really enjoy the class I get a lot out of it," Student Matthew Brown. "He's one of those teachers that if he's not teaching we can shoot the breeze and we can just kind of talk about whatever and laugh and joke but when its time for us to learn we can start class and start learning its just very easy for us to transition."
Coach Stevenson graduated from Sparkman High School in 2007 so he has personal ties to the school. He treats his students like they're his own and that's what sets him a part.
