A way to give back

More happy teachers received the books shown in the picture and another box of culturally diverse moves from the SC Book Flood!

A special note from We Are Creed’s President, Stephanie Creed:
“I will forever be indebted to the town of Pelion, South Carolina and Dr. Jowers for taking a chance and hiring a new teacher. Pelion Middle School taught me the joys of teaching, the importance of a community, and a ridiculous amount of life lessons.

Coming from the suburbs of Illinois, this rural location was nothing like my educational experiences. Even more, the poverty and hardships the students and families endured was unexpected, and I was ill-prepared for how to support them. Thanks to a workshop at a conference, a district administrator that I annoyed with my requests for a cohort, and a great professor from Center of Excellence to Prepare Teachers of Children of Poverty at Francis Marion University, I began to understand some of ‘my kids.’ The teachers and students at Pelion Middle School are the reason this organization was started — to support those Creating Remarkable Effects Every Day.

I am overjoyed that Pelion Middle School, my home away from home for many years, was a recipient of the SC Book Flood. I guarantee these books are appreciated and readers will enjoy these donations.”
