GREAT FALLS — Caressa Hewitt, a first-grade teacher at Morningside Elementary School in Great Falls, is our latest "One Class At A Time" grant recipient.
Hewitt's passion to apply for the $250 grant stems from her time serving our country.
While deployed, Hewitt was able to keep in touch with students using an interactive program called ‘Seesaw.'
She has now implemented the digital technology into her classroom so students can interact with each other.
The grant, presented by Kaeli Stearns of First Interstate Bank, will allow her to buy new microphones and webcams so students can record and document their work.

The SeeSaw website provides this overview:
- Students use creative tools to take pictures, draw, record videos and more to capture learning in a portfolio.
- Teachers find or create activities to share with students.
- Families only see their child's work and leave comments and encouragement.
One Class At A Time is a partnership between KRTV and First Interstate Bank.
