Brittany Boone, English teacher and drama/theater sponsor for Cloudland High School, is the latest Northeast Community Credit Union Helping Teachers Teach grant winner.
Boone applied for the Helping Teachers Teach to help purchase costumes, backdrops, and microphones for an upcoming school production of Alice in Wonderland.
“Drama is such a wonderful experience for students,” Boone said. “The program gives students an opportunity to practice and hone public speaking, organization, reading, memorization, and artistic skills. Not to mention the bonds it builds between students.”
