Amy Cole, teacher at Harold McCormick Elementary, is the latest Northeast Community Credit Union Helping Teachers Teach grant winner.
Cole applied for the grant to provide Boogie Board tablets for students to use to practice writing. The Boogie Boards will be used in addition to paper and dry erase boards.
“The students will have another way to practice letter formation and then later use them to practice writing words and sentences,” Cole said.
