Susan Dugger, teacher at Wandell Early Learning Center, is the latest Northeast Community Credit Union Helping Teachers Teach grant winner.
Dugger applied for the grant to purchase a new rug for her pre-K classroom. The new rug will replace an older, well-used rug in the class.
“The rug is used very often throughout the school day as a meeting place for teaching,” Dugger said. “Each day, it is used for circle time, English Language Arts, and large group learning.”
Northeast Community Credit Union awards $300 every month to a classroom to be utilized for classroom needs, classroom activities, and academic enrichment. Helping Teachers Teach is open to teachers within Carter, Johnson, Unicoi, Sullivan and Washington counties who are members of Northeast Community Credit Union. Area teachers may become members online or at any NCCU location and can download the grant application on the credit union’s website: www.BeMyCU.org.
