BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (WIAT) — Congratulations to Elizabeth Gilmore!
Gilmore is this week’s recipient of a One Class at a Time grant.
Chief Meteorologist Mark Prater surprised the teacher with a $1,000 check at Rocky Ridge Elementary School in Birmingham.
Gilmore is a 5th-grade teacher, who tells us she plans to use her grant to purchase a class set of droids.
“It is super important to have the kids engineering and math fields,” Gilmore said. “And by using the Little Bits Circuit Kits, which they’ve come out with the new droid kit, that I would like the kids to be excited about.”
We’d like to thank Little Caesars and Pepsi for making the One Class at a Time grants possible.
