‘Teachers of Tomorrow’ Makeover a Local Elementary Classroom

04.18.2013

HPU High Point University Teachers of TomorrowHIGH POINT, N.C., April 18, 2013 – A group of High Point University education majors dedicated their weekend to makeover local teacher Phyllis Marshall’s Kirkman Park Elementary classroom.

HPU’s Teachers of Tomorrow chapter raised funds to purchase new supplies and decorations. The makeover included a special mural painted by an HPU student, installing a new literacy center/reading area, a new bulletin board, revamping Marshall’s desk and a new iPad for Marshall.

The students say it was all worth it after they unveiled the new room to Marshall and her class Monday morning.

“When I saw Ms. Marshall crying as we revealed the classroom to her, I felt like we truly made a difference in her life and the lives of her students,” said education major Sydney Breslow. “It felt so good to see how all of our hard work paid off and how she is going to be able to become an even better teacher because of these few tools that we added to her already full tool box.”
Other donations for the project came from the HPU Student Government Association, and “Global-the Total Office” donated a new office chair to the school’s principal, Dr. Jamal Crawford.

“The High Point University Teachers of Tomorrow consistently provide service to our community, schools, students and teachers,” said Dr. Beth Holder, associate professor of special education and adviser to Teachers of Tomorrow. “We believe every child deserves a quality education – and teachers should be respected, admired and celebrated. The classroom makeover provided an opportunity to celebrate a deserving teacher.”
