She has been in Sonoraville High's Work-Based Learning program for the last two years, building her business while gaining valuable work experience and course credits. Accompanying Kylie to the scholarship luncheon banquet in Chattanooga was her Work-Based Learning Coordinator, Dr. Andrea Walraven.

We look forward to seeing Kylie's success at Nationals.

Mrs. Albright's students prepared lessons to work with the 3-4 year old students on counting, number identification, and many other activities. These students have worked on created number cards, thematic counting books, sensory bags to practice number-writing, and lesson plans connecting these activities with standards and best teaching practices.
