Mrs. Krystle Williams, 1st Grade Teacher at Buckland Elementary, Awarded the Jernigan Mini Grant
Mrs. Williams received the Jernigan Mini Grant to create a classroom environment that is centered around flexible seating and teaching children to take control of their own learning. By receiving the grant, students now have 11 different seating choices that they are allowed to pick from daily, based on where they feel they learn best. This is a work in progress, and Mrs. Williams is enjoying this new adventure with her first grade students, as they learn and grow.
Congratulations Gates County Board of Education!!
