Airline’s Tracey Sarvis Wins
$1,000 Classroom Grant
Lights, camera, action! That is what Airline High School teacher Tracey Sarvis will soon be saying in her French and AP Human Geography classes.
She is the latest winner of a $1,000 KTBS/Barksdale Federal Credit Union “One Class At a Time” grant. Principal Jason Rowland accompanied KTBS 3 education reporter Crystal Whitman to Sarvis’ classroom Wednesday to surprise her with the news.
“I feel like I won the lottery, only this is better because I worked for it!” Sarvis exclaimed.
Sarvis submitted a grant idea to buy video equipment for use in both her French and AP Geography classes. Students in AP Geography will use it to create news documentaries while her language students will videotape themselves speaking in order to improve their fluency.
“We have so few supplies technology-wise,” Jarvis explained. “It is nice to have a financial resource other than my own paycheck,” which she added is what teachers do more often than not.
Thanks to KTBS and “One Class At a Time” sponsors Barksdale Federal Credit Union and Suddenlink, Jarvis will be able to broaden her students’ educational experience with technology that makes learning fun without dipping into her pocketbook to buy it.
Congratulations Ms. Jarvis!
