KINSTON, NC – (WNCT) Contentnea Savannah K-8 school’s Becky Hines is WNCT’s STEM Teacher of the Month.

Hines is from Lenior County and attended schools in the county. She attended NC State, earning her degree in Agricultural Extension Education and worked in finance and consulting for years, but always felt the calling to do more for her community. “I’ve always been super interested in education, even when I was involved with rotary or the chamber of commerce; I’ve always been involved in some kind of education realm, because I know the importance of education and the importance of the community playing a part in education in our schools,” she said.

Students integrate stem into building gardens, there are twenty-seven raised beds on the campus grounds, it’s called project based learning. Hines explained, “we’re able to teach all kinds of stem aspects from gridding off the beds themselves, figuring out capacity, how many seeds do we need to put in this one grid and how much can we plant in this one bed and it all survive and be healthy.”
