The NewsCenter1 and First Interstate Bank 1 + 1 Giving Campaign surprised Reading Teacher Heather Warren Thursday with a $250.00 check.
Warren teaches reading at Central High School and applied for the grant money to purchase reading books for her classroom. Warren has been teaching at Central for 13 years and is very passionate about teaching. She believes that purchasing new books will spark a greater interest in reading among the students.
Heather Warren, Reading Teacher, said, "They need recreational books to read to practice and roughly about 9 dollars a piece and so to get money to buy new books keeps them interested."
Warren says she often times purchases new books from her own pocket and that $250.00 is greatly appreciated. The students struggling with reading will now have more options for practicing the craft.
