  • School offers Spanish lessons for its teachers


    Three days a week, teachers at Sherwood Elementary become students for the afternoon so they can learn basic grammar, spelling, and pronunciation. In Spanish, that is. The school’s ESL (English as a Second Language) teacher Edgar Coronado is offering Spanish lessons to any interested teachers. The classes are giving teachers new ways to communicate with their students, and perhaps more important, with their students’ parents.

  • Students bring their ideas into 3D reality


    From board game pieces to a mechanical hand, students at Cherryville High School are getting the chance to envision, design, and then bring their ideas into 3D reality thanks to a teacher who is engaging her students with technology. The MakerBot is what makes Joy Cash’s classroom unique. It’s a desktop 3D printer, and Cherryville was the first school in Gaston County to use one. For the past three years, Cash has been teaching students to create objects with the printer and helping them to learn math, art, physics, and science in the process.
