Wendy Lyons, seventh and eighth grade science teacher at Hunter Elementary School, is the latest recipient of the Northeast Community Credit Union Helping Teachers’ Teach grant. Lyons plans to use the grant to purchase a VEX Robotics program for Hunter Elementary students and to start a competition robotics teams. “The project introduces and enhances STEM basics for students in seventh and eighth grades,” Lyons said. “It teaches scientific approaches to the engineering design model while incorporating technology and math in complex problem-solving skills.” 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.
