Ms. Stephanie Klein, a teacher at Greenfield Elementary, in Woodville, Wisconsin, has been awarded a national grant by the Association of American Educators Foundation to purchase math materials, including flash cards, dice, magnets, and geometric shapes, for her kindergarten and first grade classrooms.
“The materials will be used to implement the Common Core State Standards and provide differentiated learning for all students,” explained Klein. “I am excited for the learning potential they will provide, as well as the hands on experience they will give students.”
AAEF is committed to offering individual educators various avenues for improving effectiveness in the classroom. “AAEF commends the dedication that Ms. Klein has demonstrated in securing funding for this new project,” said AAEF Chairman Gary Beckner. “These scholarships and grants are an investment in empowering teachers as professionals across the country.”
The Association of American Educators Foundation is a non-profit charitable foundation that provides the public and public school teachers with educational information to help reform and improve the education of America’s youth. The national scholarship and grant competition is held twice a year in the fall and spring and is open to all educators. The fall deadline is October 1, 2013.
