Brittany Nechanicky, a kindergarten teacher at Lincoln Elementary in Waterloo, is the Tools for School winner for the month of December.
She won $1,000 for her students. They will be using the money to buy a new classroom carpet. It will replace the worn out tape they’ve been using.
"We’re getting a carpet, how excited are you guys?" said Nechanicky. "Happy and excited!"
The Cedar Valley Tools for Schools program is a partnership between KWWL, The University of Iowa Community Credit Union, and Kimball and Beecher.
