Elementary School News

To: Post Elementary

From: Waller With Love

 

 When Waller first grade teacher Jamie Prock heard about a fire that devastated Post Elementary in her neighboring hometown in Texas, she felt compelled to do something. Little did she know, her young students would take ownership of her idea and turn it into something really big.

 

Prock initially thought about sending school supplies to Post Elementary, which was reduced to charred remains. However, first grader Lamarcus Harris had a much grander idea.

 

 “I said I was going to bring lots of stuff to help that classroom because they don’t have a lot of stuff because their school burned down,” Harris said proudly.

 

 Prock filled in the gaps, explaining “We were going to do just school supplies, but Lamarcus said ‘Why not do classroom supplies to replenish the teachers’ resources?’ They took this and made it their own.”

 

 From students and their families to faculty and staff, everyone at Waller pulled together to donate loads of supplies. Not only did they bring in basic supplies, but also books for class libraries and even pictures to hang on the walls.

 

 “Their parents have been very receptive to helping others,” Prock said. “And some with very little have been the ones to give the most.”

 

 Not only did Prock model the importance of helping others, she also turned the supply drive into a lesson. She gave each of her students a job, then organized them into teams and appointed group leaders that were responsible for counting, labeling and assembling supplies into boxes.

 

 As an added heartfelt touch, her students created cards for their peers in Texas.

 

 Over Fall break, Prock traveled to the Lone Star state where she met with the principal of Post Elementary and handed over the care boxes.


 “You think ‘they’re six,’ but when given the opportunity they know how to organize. Their leadership skills are amazing and they’re even asking ‘what can we do next?’”

Jennifer Gulett Gets a Gold Star

 

 Everyone appreciates a pat on the back for a job well done, but the one Jennifer Gulett got this week brought tears to her eyes.

 

 Gathered in the gymnasium for an assembly at Waller Elementary, Gulett had no idea all the hoopla was for her. Then, her name was called out as Bossier Schools’ Gold Star winner for October.

 

 “I’m so surprised,” Gulett said as she hugged Principal Lisa Nix and wiped tears from her eyes.

 

 It was a nomination from the parent of one of Gulett’s former students that won her the employee award for excellence.

 

 It read, “Mrs. Gulett goes above and beyond. She cares so much about her students and makes sure they succeed. She is very dedicated to her work and strongly believes it’s what she does which makes the kids believe in themselves.” The nomination went on to say, “She is the reason my son (who has dyslexia) actually likes to read now and is also reading at grade level. We owe her a lot; this is just one way of saying thank you. Thank you, Mrs. Gulett, not just for helping my son but for helping everyone that needs it.”  

 

  “The fact this mother took the time to say that means so much,” Gulett said. “It means the world to me. It means I made a difference with one child. One at a time.”

 

  "When a parent nominates you, it means even more," Jill Skaggs said to Gulett. Skaggs works in the marketing department at Bossier Federal Credit Union, which sponsors the Gold Star award program.

 

 Teaching is, no doubt, in Gulett’s blood. Her mother, Norma McKellar, taught for years at Bossier Schools. The timing of the Gold Star award was particularly emotional for Gulett.

 

 “This is special because my mom and I started Read 180 together,” she explained. “She was at Plantation Park and passed away five years ago this month.”

 

 Gulett said while her mother was alive, they were able to compare notes about the Read 180 program that was geared toward struggling readers in fourth and fifth grades. It was a great bonding experience.

 

 “I ended up being able to teach with her that way, which was always my mom’s dream,” Gulett added.

 

 Her enthusiasm for helping children go from struggling to proficient readers is evident.


 “I love to see children grow and help them become confident in themselves. Confidence is key. I wouldn’t want to be anywhere else.”
