Teachers work smarter at Arbor Springs Two elementary instructors plan learning collaboratively to help their students By Celia Shortt celia@newnan.com

Cristy Fogle and Dr. Page Tarleton both have a different kindergarten class at Arbor Springs Elementary School in Newnan, but rather than work alone, they plan collaboratively to make the best possible learning experience for each student in their respective classes. “ You just bu i ld on each other,” said Fogle. “When you close your door and you go in your classroom and you teach on your own, you make your job 1,000 times harder because you get your best ideas from other people.” Fogle a nd Ta rleton have found co-planning provides a healthy and friendly competition for them both. “The friendly competition is so good because we don’t do it because we’re really competitive — like mean about it,” said Tarleton. “We do it because we don’t want one kid getting a benefit that everyone would be able to benefit from.” “And just by doing it together, we’re bouncing ideas off each

other,” finished Fogle. “A nd it ’s rea l ly work i ng smarter, not harder,” added Tarleton. “Because really the first person gets the kinks out and the second person just rolls with it.” Fogle and Tarleton use this system to create an environment in which each student can succeed and thrive. “We expect ever y k id to achieve their potential,” said Fogle. “For us to really do what we’re doing, we have to set up a room that allows every kid to move at their pace and be as challenged as much as they can.” “We don’t have unreasonable expectations,” said Tarleton. “But we expect the most from our kids, and they just soar.” Fogle and Tarleton make the kid’s activities quick and different, but supportive of the same topic — math, phonics, language arts, etc. They also make their students an active part of their learning. “They (our students) get to pick things that are important to them,” said Fogle. “The kids

are getting to work at their [individual] level.” Fogle and Tarleton also seek and encourage the parents of their students to communicate and be involved in their child’s learning. Both teachers contacted all parents within the first two days to report something good about their child. “The first two days of school we call every family and we have something awesome to say about their kid because that draws them in to say, ‘Hey, she’s gonna work with us. She’s not only going to call for bad stuff,’” said Tarleton. “We do love our families,” added Fogle. “We value our families.” “Your parent is your best ally,” added Tarleton. “If they’re on your side, and you have a great relationship, then that kid could move mountains.” The two teachers have had 100 percent participation in parent-teacher conferences. In the spring, the teachers will hold a special conference in which students will lead parents in the meeting, highlight-

ing what they’ve learned and improvements they’ve made throughout the year.

Healthy Family Meals ...in a hurry!

The Turner-Nolen-Fanning home at 122 Greenville St. will be featured on the Tour of Homes.

Piedmont Newnan Hospital Auxiliary hosts 26th Candlelight Tour of Homes Piedmont Newnan Hospital Auxiliary will host its 26th Candlelight Tour of Homes Dec. 6 from 4-9 p.m., highlighting five homes in the historic GreenvilleLaGrange district in Newnan. Among the homes featured will be the Turner-Nolen-Fanning home at 122 Greenville Street. One of the first homes to be built by a female architect, this 1906 home is an example of an early Craftsman design. Dr. William Turner owned one of the first automobiles in Newnan, and the high step-in, drive-through portico on the front exterior gave him easy access: the height of the step matched his horseless carriages’ running board. His family owned this unique home until 1952, when it was sold to Col. Neil Nolan and his wife, Spennie. They created a beautiful garden behind their home and built a tennis court. The present owners, John and Nina Fanning, have enjoyed the home for the past 18 years. They enjoy entertaining in their historical but comfortable home, and their hospitality extends out back to an arbor-covered patio, a fishpond with a waterfall, and a pool and pool house. The tan brick, two-story home features the technique of half-timbering in both the exterior and interior. Elements of this design are seen throughout

the house, including the built-in window seat by the living room fireplace, the bay areas and fireplaces in the dining room and den, the dark, heavy-ceiling beams, the built-in dining room cabinet, and more than a thousand leaded glass window panes. Among original items in the home are a hanging chandelier and shades in the living room. In the kitchen, a set of cabinets from the original butler’s pantry is still in use. A dome-shaped leaded glass light over the main sink and a brick wall in the kitchen all provide authenticity to this unique kitchen, with its extra tall counters and island. The home, decorated in a Southwestern style, displays an abundance of Native American art and textiles. Welcoming visitors to this home is a 7-foot tall wooden Indian called “Chief.” A special feature in the den is a Southwestern landscape mural on the walls, frieze, and ceiling which blends stunningly with the creative simplicity of the unique early 20th century design.

LaGrange St. • Bryant-Christiansen home at 108 LaGrange Street. Proceeds from the event will be directed toward a $150,000 pledge for the establishment of a Healing Garden at Piedmont Newnan Hospital on Poplar Road. This unique garden and water feature will be located to the right of the hospital’s front entrance with views from the chapel. It will serve as a refuge of beauty, peace, and serenity for the community, patients, and staff, said auxiliary members. Tickets for the annual event went on sale Nov. 8 and may be purchased at the Piedmont New na n Fitness Center in downtown Newnan, the Coweta County Visitors Center at the historic courthouse in downtown Newnan, Branch and Vine at Ashley Park, The Poplar Shop at Piedmont Newnan Hospital and Collectors’ Corner on Highway 34 East, Sharpsburg.

Beef Tacos

Fun favorites with a ‘trim’ twist Making the decision to eat better doesn’t mean you have to stock your fridge exclusively with carrot sticks and lettuce leaves. T here a re plenty of healthy and delicious meal options that will have your taste buds cheering. Fill up your fridge How many times have you raided the fridge, only to eat the first thing you could find? Arrange your fridge so everything at eye level is packed with nutritional benefits. The top shelf is prime space for fresh fruits, berries, vegetable sticks, string cheese and hard boiled eggs. Keeping lean proteins on hand is another way to take proactive steps towards creating healthy meals. Lean proteins, like the protein found in soy, can help families feel fuller longer and can also help lower the chances of childhood obesity.

Pick the perfect protein During dinnertime, entrées featuring beef, pork or chicken are often the star of the plate. However, m eat proteins can supply your recipes with unwanted saturated fats and cholesterol. I n stead of a sk i ng you r family to forego their favorite meat dishes, try swap­ ping out meat proteins with meat alternatives, using soy protein. Soy is a high-quality vegetable protein that is easy to incorporate into your family’s diet. It can support muscle strength and is an especially good choice for managing healthy weight for the entire family. Meat alternatives provide the taste, texture and nutrition that meat lovers want, without all of the saturated fats and cholesterol. Look for great flavor matches like ground pork, Italian sausage, ground chicken, crab and

ground beef. Quick, easy and delicious have to be a part of every family’s meal on busy weekdays. Breakfast Burritos are sure to be a family favorite. Simply fill tortillas with Italian sausage, eggs, cheese, salsa and fresh herbs for a hot, tasty start to your morning. Another sure crowd pleaser is Beef Tacos. Just swap out traditional ground beef for g rou nd beef a lter n ative and spoon your favorite taco ingredients into soft or hard shells. Homemade Beef Sloppy Joes are equally as easy to make. This recipe is a tasty way to get your whole family fed and out the door in time for evening activities. Once you’ve picked the perfect recipes and filled your fridge with lean proteins, like soy protein, eating well will become a healthy habit the whole family will love.

“I will praise the name of God with a song, and will magnify Him with thanksgiving.” Psalm 69:30 “I will offer to thee the sacrifice of thanksgiving, and will call upon the name of the Lord.” Psalm 116:17 “As ye have therefore received Christ Jesus the Lord, so walk ye in Him: rooted and built up in Him, and established in the faith as ye have been taught, abounding therein with thanksgiving.” Colossians 2:6-7 Thanksgiving is not a day, but rather an attitude of the heart!

problems. Griffiths said Fogle was not afraid to try something new to help her daughter succeed. “I did not know teachers like her existed,” she said. “I felt like we were a team.” Melissa Casablanca is the special education program specia list for t he Coweta County School System. Her husband, Jose Casablanca, is the principal at Smokey Road Middle School, and their son, Alex, is a student in Dr. Tarleton’s Class. “She is truly a godsend,” she said. “She is the most dynamic educator I have ever met. She goes above and beyond and knows how to reach the kids and keep them motivated. We a re t h ri l led A lex ha s had her for his kindergarten experience.” To foster parental involvement, Fogle and Tarleton send weekly newsletters and comments on each student’s learning, as well as hold learning celebrations. “Sometimes we invite others in to be a part of us and feel like a community, and other times to see their learning and what they’re doing,” said Fogle. “So you hope they’re getting that full picture of the classroom — who the kids are, but also what the standards are.” Everything that Fogle and Tarleton do in the classroom goes toward educating their students and what their expectations are for their students and their future after the classroom. “We want them to leave us with a toolbox of knowledge,” said Tarleton “So, they’re not looking to an adult to always say, ‘help me,’ added Fogle. “(That) they are independent thin kers. When you leave here, I don’t want you (the student) to be able to do something because my teacher told you to do it.”

Creswell, Standing TALL Ex-Lady Indian prepares for final year of college softball after overcoming childhood ailment By EMILY GROOMS Special to the Newnan Times-Herald Growing up, playing sports was as much a part of Rebecca Creswell’s everyday life as it has been now as a senior member of Truett McConnell’s softball program. But at age 1 2 , they were nearly taken away forever when taking what seemed to be routine soccer physical. That’s when doctors told her that she had a severe case of scoliosis and quite possibly may never play organized sports again. The Newnan native and former East Coweta High softball standout had a 53-percent curve in the bottom half of her spine and a 47-percent curve on the top. The prognosis was dire, with the need to operate immediately due to the potential for her organs to be starved for blood. In a 10-hour procedure doctors fused two rods to her spine to increase her height two inches. “The day I found out that I had scoliosis was one of the lowest days of my life,” Creswell said. “It was completely unexpected. I had all the checkups at school, my back never hurt, and there were never any warning signs. One day I went in for a normal soccer physical and my life was changed forever.” While recovery involved a seven month process, it was equally tough for relearning a grueling position like catcher Her straightened back forced her to become mechanically perfect. “I have to hit and field correctly because that’s the only way my back will work,” she said. “W hen you play catcher, you have to have the ability to roll your shoulders and block balls in the dirt. I had to learn to physically overcome this obstacle and retrain my body; but with great coaches and a lot of practice, I was able to over-

come it.” At East Coweta, Creswell played first, catcher and even pitched at times, while contributing in trips to the 2008 Class AAAAA state finals as a junior and a return trip to the GHSA Elite 8 as a senior. For a menta l aspect, t he ordeal had a positive effect on Creswell in more ways than one. “It made me tougher,” she said. “I’ve learned so much having to go through this challenge, and I’m thankful for every day that the Lord allows me to step foot on the field. I have learned to play every game like it’s your last, because for me, it almost was.” Creswell has played on the Truett-McConnell College softball team for four years, and in 2013 her teammates successfully nominated her for the National Intercollegiate Athletic Association’s Character Award. Last season, she appeared in 25 of the Bears’ 41 games, including 11 starts. “Creswell is the type of person who puts the needs of others before herself,” said head softball coach Jenni Shepard. “She always goes above and beyond what is expected as a teammate, on and off the field. She’s a woman of faith who plays and lives life with a lot of heart. I’ve enjoyed watching her mature and grow into the person she is today.” Creswell said one thing she will always take with her is the lessons she learned in overcoming adversity. “In life, and in softball, you are going to be presented with challenges,” she said. “It’s how you respond and act in those moments t hat def i ne what kind of person you choose to be. Having scoliosis surgery allowed me to see God’s bigger plan for my life, and I would never go back and change that.” The seven months of recovery, in which Creswell was tutored from home through most of her seventh grade year, certainly tested her faith.

Rebecca Creswell, seen pitching for East Coweta during the 2008 season, was told at age 12 that she might never play organized sports again.

“I was angry, hurt, and confused. How could God give me these talents, gifts, and abilities and then just let me waste them away?” Creswell said. While recovering, Creswell satisfied her social interaction by attending church. “Before that, I played softball ever y weekend, sometimes playing two tournaments in a single weekend. Needless to say, I believed in God, but didn’t go to church or have any other fellowship other than hanging out with my softball teammates.” It was during that time that Creswell realized that her priorities had to change from what they had been. “My eyes were finally opened to how I had literally been worshiping softball and, right then, I knew something had to change,” she said. As her physical strength grew, so did her strength in her faith. “I can honestly say that the reason I went from barely being able to walk, to back out on the field, running bases and catching pitches, is all from the will of God. When I tell most doctors that I still play softball, they look at me like I’m crazy, but I just tell them that God has allowed me to play, and until he takes it away, I’m going to give him the victory and all the glory in everything I do.”

Another rite of passage ‘Forward, the Light Brigade!’ Was there a man dismay’d ? Not tho’ the soldier knew Some one had blunder’d: Theirs not to make reply, Theirs not to reason why, Theirs but to do & die, Into the valley of Death Rode the six hundred. Weapons — in this case, an arrow — were handed to each boy by their father. The boys, in turn, handed their moms a single rose. As each boy was called forward, they threw their old scarves into the fire. Their new leader presented them with different colored e pa u le t s , si g n a l i n g t h ei r advancement in rank.

It was Crossover. A ceremony we have tweaked — not twerked — over the last couple of years. We — the dads — were pretty impressed with what we put together. It was a rite of passage. An initiation into a new world, so to speak. Yes, the Webelos II of Pack 47 were now officially members of Boy Scout Troop 47. Truth be told, most of the parents of the graduates were happiest that there would be no more Pinewood Derby. That annual contest where dads took a block of wood and tried to cut it into something resembling a race car. And then the moms, after demanding said dads go to the hospital to stitch up X number of nearly sawed-off fingers, would decorate said block of wood into something. T he boys a re becom i ng men.

The ceremony itself at the battleground, er ... campsite, started late. Traffic was bad, the time change meant it was darker than normal. By the time the rite of passage and t he fol low i ng celebrator y feast were over, it was really late. And really, really cold. So instead of pitching tents, several parents just blew up their sleeping pads and slept in their SUVs. And I called “foul.” I realized this was car camping, but that definition does not include actually sleeping in a car.

One of the rules our troop has is no electronics. Cell phones a re col lec ted a nd kids can call home at night, but nothing else. Yeah, that always works. You can always tell some kid(s) are violating that. You’ll see a bunch of kids huddled together. Very, very quiet. You walk up and they are watching some video or game or whatever.
