Courtney Taylor, Response to Intervention Coordinator at Hunter Elementary, is the latest Northeast Community Credit Union Helping Teacher’s Teach grant winner.

Taylor plans to use the grant to purchase literacy tools for kindergarten through second grade students at Hunter Elementary. The materials would include reading dice, self-correcting methods and word sorts that focus on beginning reading sounds.

“Students will be having fun while they learn,” Taylor said. “These resources will be used in small groups and students will play games and improve their basic reading skills.”
