Cabot teacher bleeds orange and blue


 

CABOT, Ark. (KTHV) - Eventhough the Broncos' main fan base is in Colorado, some of the team's biggest fans are right here in Cabot, Ark.

“We're hardcore Bronco fans,” said Kandace Hardcastle, Pre-K teacher in Cabot. 

Dedication is a word that describes these fans best.

"If it's Friday, they want to know if Monday is going to be Bronco day," said Hardcastle

Hardcastle incorporates learning and her love for the Broncos into her student's everday activities.

“This week, we've been learning about the letter B,” explained Hardcastle. “We've talked about the Broncos, the Super Bowl. All of the kids, they do a letter B bag, and bring things from home that start with the letter B."

Win or lose, this room of fans may have even won THV11 over.

Cabot schools finding new ways to teach


CABOT, Ark. (KTHV) -- New technology and new methods are helping kids learn better than ever before.

Students at Cabot Middle School South are connecting in the way that they learn best, and through their own interests.

Tonya Choate's sixth grade classroom in Cabot is an example of the way classrooms are changing.

“Differentiation is designing lessons that meet the needs of each of the children independently, because all of the children in the classrooms are very diverse now and children have independent needs,” said Choate.

“Not all students learn the same way-- some students may learn by writing or taking notes, while other students might prefer a laptop; it’s all about personalized learning.”

Possible scam involving Cabot Fire Department


CABOT, Ark. (KTHV) – Local fire departments are sending out a warning about a possible telephone scam.

Some Cabot and Searcy residents have said that they have received calls from someone identifying themselves as a firefighter asking for monetary donations, even offering to come and pick the money up.

Cabot Fire Chief Phillip Robinson cautioned to be wary if you get a call from someone identifying themselves as a firefighter asking for donations.

“A lot of times, because we are firefighters and we tend to help people, for the most part, folks will use the title of firefighter when they call and ask for money from somebody,” said Robinson.
