Teacher Grants

One of the foundation's amazing grant recipients, Rachel Tomaszewski, sent pictures of how she used her $1,000 grant. She purchased tablets. Ms. Tomaszewski tells the foundation that students use the tablets to take AR tests and practice math skills. She also continues to explore new ways to implement them into her lessons.

Congratulations to our spring 2015 teacher grant recipient, Tracy Petersen. Tracy used the $500 grant money to purchase materials to create hands-on learning activities for the TOYBOX preschool at Queen Creek High School. The students enrolled in early childhood education 2 helped to find activities that they could make into a learning center to help teach AZ early learning standards in a different way. The high school students and the preschool students had lots of fun with these activities. Tracy and the preschool students are currently using the activities again this year and are always looking for more.
