Longview Elementary Second Grade Teachers Paige Clark and Trina Evans were frustrated with all the jumbled-up and broken headphone cords they were dealing with. In fact, too much of their time was wasted on resolving these entanglements.
Thankfully, there was a solution in the form of Murray Education Foundation teacher grants. Through a simple request, Paige and Trina were able to acquire funding to purchase better-quality headphones. Now they and their students are spending more time learning and dealing with fewer annoying barriers to learning.
Sometimes the small and simple things can make a huge difference in learning. Even though the grants are small, they are powerful tools for teachers to make an audible difference in student growth.
MEF partners with the community to fund educator grants that help students grow. If your business would like to sponsor with MEF, bringing to life a love for learning with Murray kids, contact Doug Perry at 801-264-7400.
