Marshall ISD Education Foundation Opens Applications for Spring Grants for Teachers | News
Marshall ISD teachers looking to implement new learning tools in the classroom will now have the opportunity to receive much-needed help.
The Marshall ISD Education Foundation has now opened its Spring Grant application process for teachers to apply for funding. Funding may be awarded to teachers who present innovative ideas to improve learning in the classroom.
The foundation works year-round to raise funds with the goal of supplementing teachers‘ classrooms with tools, software, and other innovative ideas to help with student learning.
Teachers then write a grant application to the foundation, articulating their idea for the funds, and foundation members then award grants to teachers to see those ideas come to life in classrooms.
Some of the more than $48,000 in grants awarded this fall have funded teachers for math programs, sensory bins for elementary classrooms, reading programs, an outdoor garden for students at Price T. Young Elementary School, digital globes for Marshall Junior High School students. , news studio equipment for students at Marshall High School, a kiln to fire pottery for art students, and funding for various science lab experiments at Marshall High School.
“We were also able to partner with Marshall ISD to provide eight teachers with a library of books for their students through a reading program with the district,” said Marshall ISD Education Foundation Fellow Christy Godwin. “We are thrilled for all scholarship recipients and students that these scholarships will have an impact for years to come. We look forward to donating another large amount in the spring.
