The school year is off to a great start especially for one Caddo Parish teacher.

Nicole Nelson, a teacher at Turner Elementary in west Shreveport, was able to add a few new reading techniques to her class this year thanks to a One Class at a Time award. Nelson plans to buy a set of Scholastic fiction and non-fiction text sets to help increase the vocabulary of her students. 

"The third graders will have a little buddy. What's going to happen is what they're learning in their class, they'll get a chance to reteach it and if you can reteach something to someone then you've mastered it" says Nelson.

One Class at a Time is sponsored by Barsksdale Federal Credit Union, Suddenlink and CHRISTUS Schumpert Group Practice Pediatric Associates.
