Teacher grants are a centerpiece of the Madison County Education Foundation (MCEF) mission.
“The common thread,” MCEF President Barbara Kres Beach said, “is that our teachers know what our students need; each grant adds something special that supports learning in the county and helps make our young people successful. There is no single formula.”
This year, the foundation awarded grants totaling $8,850—more than ever before. Faculty applicants cited goals, grade levels affected, methods of assessing project success, project budgets and their principal’s agreement in their applications. Awards this year were made to teachers at all four Madison County Public Schools for projects that, according to Beach, “excelled in usefulness, creativity and sustainability.”
