Curry Jaynes latest HTT winner

Curry Jaynes, second grade teacher at Hunter Elementary School, is the latest Northeast Community Credit Union Helping Teachers Teach grant winner.

Jaynes applied for the Helping Teachers Teach grant to purchase more books for her classroom’s new Accelerated Reading program.

“We are implementing the Accelerated Reading program to encourage students to enjoy reading,” Jaynes said. “I need more AR books in a variety of levels to encourage their interests in reading for fun.”
