KC in the Morning Plays Teacher’s Pet

Helping out a teacher doesn’t guarantee good grades, but it doesn’t hurt! Join KC Lupp and Jessica Rose as we play Teacher’s Pet this summer and work to outfit Green Country’s finest with everything they need to outfit their classroom this school year. We know teachers dip into their own pockets to make their classrooms cheery and bright for students, and we want to do our part to help.

Kami is a librarian at the Garfield STEAM Academy in Sand Springs.

Kami describes the challenges she faces in creating a unique learning environment for her students:

My name is Kami McCabe and I’m an elementary school librarian.  I am starting my 26th year in the library at Garfield STEAM Academy in Sand Springs. We are a Title 1 school and service roughly 450 students in grades K-5.  As a STEAM academy, I incorporate STEAM activities with literacy for all ages by providing Makerspaces and Centers in the library. I am always looking for ways to boost reading, writing, and listening skills in a fun and creative manner. My students love the centers in the library and dedicated areas to work.  I am hoping to add a Lego wall to our library this year.  These items are reflected on my wish list along with some fabulous books and a new barcode scanner for circulation.

Nicole is a first grade teacher at Glenpool Elementary School

Nicole describes what kind of classroom and learning setting she tries to create for her students:

My name is Nikki Sullins and I am a first grade teacher at Glenpool Elementary. This is my second year teaching, but my first year at Glenpool. I previously taught at an extremely small school, but now at Glenpool I have a much bigger room and will have a bigger class size, so I am needing a lot more supplies. I come from a family of teachers as well. Teaching is my passion, but everything is so expensive nowadays that it’s tough to have a classroom that makes learning creative and fun for the students. I chose items for my classroom wish list that would benefit not only me as a teacher, but also my students. I do not have many manipulatives/learning activities currently and I also do not have anywhere cozy for my kids to sit during center times. I want my classroom to feel like a home away from home for my students

Meet our second teacher: Rachel Cosby

Rachel is a 10th - 12th grade teacher at Liberty High School.

Rachel describes what kind of classroom and learning setting she tries to create for her students:

I just finished my first year teaching so I am about to start my second. I teach high school English and love it!! There is not a doubt in my mind that I am doing exactly what I was called to do. I especially love teaching older students because not only do I get to teach them English but I get to help them with things like job and college applications. I believe that building relationships with my students and ensuring that they are doing okay is the most important. If they don’t trust me or their physical needs aren’t met, they will struggle to listen and learn. The school I work at is a Title 1 school. It is a rural school and many of my students come from low income homes. Since I just finished my first year teaching, I have discovered several things I need that I did not think of last year. I need some more storage for my classroom this year. We also have a class pet, she is a bunny and her name is CC, so I have a couple things for her on my list. The kids love her and she can always turn their mood around. I like to always keep candy on hand for when we have games or for birthdays. Being an English teacher, I like to have books readily available for my students so I am always working to build my classroom library. Since many of my students come from low income homes, they also come to school hungry sometimes so I like to have snacks on hand for them. To save costs, I like to create any decorations I can myself.

Meet our first teacher: Nicole Morgan

Nicole is a 3rd grade teacher at Eugene Field Elementary School.

Rachel describes what kind of classroom and learning setting she tries to create for her students:

I try to create an atmosphere of inclusion and engagement for the students. I love to provide hands on science activities and arts and crafts to keep the joy in the classroom. I also hope to cultivate a community of safety and comfort for my students. I want every child to feel like they belong and can learn in my classroom. My students live in a neighborhood that has been in a state of transformation in recent years. Some have had to move from their home but still travel to stay at Eugene Field. We are truly a family. My students have faced many challenges in their lives and need a place to grow.

Thank you in advance for helping teachers make sure their students have what they need to be successful in the classroom.
