CSISD surprised longtime 5th grade Social Studies teacher Joyce Green with a $3,123.75 grant Thursday. Green teamed up with her colleague and Language Arts teacher, Renae Davison, to write a grant for their classes. The two teachers wanted to purchase a newer 2010 textbook edition, which incorporates an interactive program into both their classrooms. They are currently using a 2000 edition in their classrooms.
“It means a lot," said Green. "Especially with the budget cuts with the state in education in the last few years, we haven’t had money to buy anything and that’s why I really really felt led to write the grant this year.”
Cypress Grove Intermediate was awarded a total of $8,123.75 in grants. The College Station ISD Education Foundation awarded 23 innovative teaching grants totaling $58,546 Thursday.
