One Class at a Time Winner : Cynthia Bickham

Posted: Updated:

With so many gadgets and apps and shortcuts for everything, sometimes we forgot about the joy of just sitting down and reading a book.

That is the reason why Caddo Parish teacher Cynthia Bickham applied for a "One Class a Time" grant.

Bickham works as a Discoveries teacher at Blanchard Elementary and is always looking for new and creative ways to teach.

"We do all sort of things, like puppet shows, anything that really gets the kids thinking and being creative," said Bickham.

This year, Bickham says her principal encouraged teachers to just allow time for students to read for the joy of reading.

"Sometimes we forget about reading for pleasure vs. reading for information," said Bickham who was inspired to create a reading club for her students.

She plans to use the grant money to buy bean bag chairs and books for her students creating a quiet and comfortable place in her room where student can take time and enjoy literature.
