A professional educators' association in my state awarded 6 first-year teacher grants of $500 each and I was chosen!!! I have to go to Shreveport (about 4 hours away, I guess) to receive it, though.

The phone call came after a very frustrating day at school where I gave a quiz on a day that had a bunch of excitement going on...grr!

Great news! How did you apply and what will you spend it on? I'm sure you have lots of great ideas!

I found out about it last year when I was given the information for the student teacher grant (which I didn't apply for because I didn't have enough time). I printed the form from their website and sent it in the mail.

I will spend the money on math manipulatives and GOOD dry erase markers for my classroom set of dry erase lap boards.

I get the check on Nov 5, then have to send in the receipts after (for my $100 from the school district, I had to spend the money FIRST, then get the check..ugh!).
