❤️❤️SugarBelle wants To Go To School❤️❤️

One of the most important responsibilities of being a small business owner, to me, is earning the loyalty and support from your small town. Just owning or opening a small business doesn't come with the blessing of immediate support. It shouldn't. Like all relationships, trust must be built, earned and fostered . SugarBelle has always taken that responsibility extremely seriously.
Yes, small businesses are the backbone of a community, but the community is the heart of small business. 
This year as part of our August Back to School event, we are looking for a special teacher to allow us to sponsor a class for the 2020 year. We want to offer ourselves as book readers, event sponsors, bad day helpers and even Pizza Party suppliers. We want to be there for her/him and her/his students. Myself and my staff want to offer our time and ability to help make this year special for both teacher and students.
We are offering the following:
1. One day a month of myself or SugarBelle staff member reading aloud, assisting with classroom projects or speaking about business or other topic suggested by teacher.
2. $100 Visa Gift Card to assist teacher with additional supplies.
3. 2 Sponsored Pizza Parties, where SugarBelle provides all food and drink at date chosen by teacher. 
4. $200 Student need stipend- SugarBelle will provide up to $200 for student necessities such as clothing, shoes, glasses, personal items, school supplies as recommended by teacher. 
5. Lastly, but not at all the least...the teacher will receive special gifts throughout the year to let him/her know that SugarBelle appreciates all that is done that is often not seen. 
Help us choose this years Teacher/Class by commenting or sharing this blog!! Winner announced August 9th!!

    Jenna Gow, Kindergarten teacher at Riverview Charter School. Ms. Jenna is hardest working, most passionate and caring teacher that I have ever known. It is inspiring to see someone take so much care in the development of her students from before the first days of school until we’ll after it lets out every year. She is just such an amazing person beyond being such a great teacher! Thank you for supporting our teachers!

    I would like to nominate Emilee Brown a second grade teacher at Bridges Prep. Emilee is a dedicated teacher to her students. She works diligently to ensure her classroom environment is warm and inviting for students. She always wants everyone to feel welcomed and loved when they enter her classroom. Emilee is also dedicated to her colleagues. For the last two years, Emilee has been an amazing mentor. She challenges me to be and better educator. I cannot think do someone who deserves this prize and recognition more than my colleague, Emilee brown.

    Kate Baskwell is a CATE teacher at Battery Creek. She went from working as a PTA at the hospital to teaching the kids about Sports Medicine. She teaches 4 different classes each semester so that keeps her on her toes. Kate makes her classes fun by have many projects naming muscles, bones, nerves etc by creating posters, bodies etc. She provides most if not all of the craft stuff for these projects. This Summer due to lack of school funds she went and purchased paint, sand paper and polyurethane to redo her classroom tables. She has spent many weeks going in every morning to strip, sand, paint and poly her classroom tables so her students will have a clean neat, bright environment to work. While doing so she started a stretching and yoga hour for the football team and helped them with heat and other injuries. She also is the mom of two young very energetic boys and loves to shop at SugarBelle when she has the time and extra $. Like most teachers Kate loves her students and wishes she could do more for all of them, then add in all of the athletes she supports through practices, games and classwork, not to mention the always available granola bar, or PB&J sandwich for the child that didn’t get breakfast or lunch, Kate goes all in for the kids at Battery Creek!

    I’d like to nominate Heather Dory. She teaches Marine Science at Beaufort High. Heather was Teacher of the Year a few years back, but you would never know it from speaking with Heather, she is not one to tout her accomplishments. She does however tout her student’s accomplishments and instills self confidence in every child who enters her class room. I hear her students sing her praises many years after they have departed high school. She is one of those teachers that you know made a difference in your life when you are reminiscing your youth. Thanks goodness we have Heather Dory’s in this world who recognize their calling and continue to wake up, show up and make a difference in our children’s future.
    She also just discovered she has a passion AND a talent for wildlife photography. I swear National Geographic is going to be knocking on her door one day 😊

    Jenna Gow, kindergarten teacher at Riverview Charter school is the most compassionate, dedicated, and caring teacher! She treats every child as if they were her own. She has taught both of my children and is without a doubt the most hard-working kindergarten teacher there is. It’s not easy as a mom to send your babies to school, not knowing how they are feeling, if they are sad, lonely, or being made fun of. But Ms Jenna never gives our tired mommy brains time to worry as she frequently checks in and updates on daily happenings! Our family loves Ms Jenna and know she would be so deserving of this special opportunity!

  • Heather Rembold: July 25, 2019

    Kefrin Woodham is a high school art teacher at John Paul II Catholic School. She has a passion for art and inspiring her students—a winning combination. She has been a teacher at JPII since we opened, and she gives her whole heart and soul to every child she meets as if they were all her own! She’s got a special place in my heart—and I’m certain in Heaven as well! 💙💛

  • Nicole Thompson : July 25, 2019

    Ms. Davis is a 1st grade teacher at Whale Branch Elementary and she is the best, most caring, helpful, supportive teacher to those children!! I wish all kids had her as a teacher. She goes above and beyond to research what kids need to succeed and how to help them succeed by not just doing new things in the class, but buying things out of pocket to support the kids’ needs. Can’t recommend her enough.

  • Ashley Weber: July 25, 2019

    Terrie Ruge- Broad River Elementary- she is going to be teaching 4th grade this year. She has been teaching 4/5th grade math and science Spanish Immersion. Transitioning back into a self contained classroom is doing to pose some challenges for her. The last 14 months have been extremely difficult year for her in many ways. She continues to push forward and be there for her students despite the hardships she has been handed. I would love to see her chosen as the 2019-2020 SugarBelle Teacher and Classroom.

  • Taylor : July 25, 2019

    I would like to nominate Emilee Brown. She has worked both in the classroom and for the district and her heart definitely lies in the classroom with those children. This year she will be a 2nd grade teacher at Bridges Prep. She is up every morning hours before she needs to be setting up fun activities for her class. She has helped students in need by giving them uniforms, buying them shoes, school supplies, literally anything they need without hesitation. She treats her students as if they were her own children and to me that is what being a teacher is all about. She works extremely hard to make sure that her students are learning and having fun while doing it. I would love this for her and I can’t think of anyone more deserving.

  • Jordan Plair: July 25, 2019

    My friend, Kim Morris, is an AMAZING teacher. She is so deserving of someone to love her classroom and students as much as she does. She balances life and work and kids.. somehow she still finds time to be a great friend!

  • Beth Geistkemper: July 25, 2019

    Kimberly Morris, is the 3rd grade teacher at Beaufort Academy! She is an amazing person and teacher. She is so patient and kind with the children. She never raises her voice. She works great with both boys and girls. She made my son LOVE to read. LOVE to READ! He stays up every night with a flash light reading in bed.
    She also has 2 children of her own, one under the age of 2.
    She works out at Earth Fit so she can keep up with the kids…
    She is amazing

    Blaire Lent at The Complete Student, LLC. Blaire has spent her career working with children of all ages and abilities. She started a tutoring business that evolved into a school. The school has evolved into an accredited private school (final approval coming this fall) that incorporates a project based curriculum written and developed by Blaire. The school focuses on a diploma tract (getting students not bound for college through high school with marketable skills to enter the workforce or go to technical/community college) and a college prep tract (she will lead students once a month through her SAT/ACT prep to prepare them to take these tests that are necessary to get into college). She is just an exceptional human being with a level of awareness and kindness that blows me away.

  • Jessica Settlemire : July 25, 2019

    Jordan Bostick of Beaufort Elementary School…she is a special education self contained teacher who has touched not only my life but those of her students and those around her. She single handily brought project unify to our school her first year at the school, she has had many students pass gen ed testing, she is pregnant this year with her first child and still wants to make sure the year is wonderful with her students. I would love this for her since I know I won’t be able to give her the help I have given her the last couple of years!
