The SCEA has Local Association chapters spread throughout the state. These Locals are the eyes, ear and voice of the members in the area school districts.

Congratulations to Hope Shirley and Bonnie Forbes, classroom teachers at Central Elementary School in Central, SC. Hope and Bonnie are receipients of a $5,000 grant from the NEA Foundation.

The NEA Foundation is an independent, public charity supported by contributions from educators, corporate sponsors, and others.  They partner with education unions, districts, and communities to create powerful, sustainable improvements in teaching and learning.

Ms. Shirley and Ms. Forbes will introduce Plants, People, and Our Planet to allow third and fourth grade students to explore the environmental factors that negatively affect plants and humans.  Students will develop a garden and outdoor reading courtyard to encourage a school wide sense of community, motivate communication, and promote critical thinking.  The project will positively impact the academic achievement and social skills of under resourced learners in the school.  

Way to go Hope and Bonnie! See photos of the Dedication Ceremony for their new Reading Garden.
