BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (WIAT) — CBS 42 Storm Team meteorologist presented a huge surprise to a teacher at Wilkerson Middle School this week.
7th grade teacher Elizabeth Bieri teaches life science at Wilkerson Middle School. Her students say that lab is one of their favorite places to learn.
Ms. Bieri applied for a ‘One Class at a Time’ grant and with the help of eCo Credit Union, CBS 42 surprised her with a $1,000 check. Now, she can give her students some new opportunities for hands-on learning.
“Something like an aquaponic system or a hydroponic system would give students a hand-on opportunity to grow plants,” Ms. Bieri said.
This grant is brought to you by eCO Credit Union for CBS 42’s One Class at a Time. If you are a teacher who would like to apply for a grant, follow this link to apply.
