WE ARE PROUD OF OUR AMAZING TEACHERS!
The Education Foundation of Palm Beach County is proud to have awarded, in partnership with our grant funders, over $110,000 in funding to support 96 GoTeach! Classroom Grants, serving over 140 teachers in over 61 schools, impacting an estimated 23,000 students in the areas of Literacy, STEM, career education and the Arts for the 2019-2020 school year!
Along with our grant funders, event sponsors, Board of Directors, teachers, principals, School District of Palm Beach County representatives, Florida legislators, and additional supporters of innovative education, we celebrated the commitment of outstanding teachers at this year's GoTeach! Classroom Grant Awards on September 26th at Keiser University's flagship campus. Keiser University hosted the event which was presented by Office Depot, and it was a night to remember. Our emcee, Office Depot's Alex Price, made everyone feel welcome and appreciated, as recognizing our amazing public-school teachers was the number one priority for the evening. In addition to this year's new grant recipients, special recognition (and grant funding) was given to the 2019 School District of Palm Beach County's Beginning, Mentor, and Teacher of the Year.
From "Turtlepalooza" to "Coding for Innovation and Invention", this year's GoTeach! Classroom Grants are amazing and showcase the ingenuity of our teachers. Students will appreciate the hands-on learning experiences that are awaiting them during this school year. Special thanks to all of our grant funders, including the Consortium of Florida Education Foundations (CFEF). It is our privilege to be able to support high-quality public education through these grants.
Thank you to all of our GoTeach! Classroom Grant Awards event and grant sponsors; this important program wouldn't be possible without your incredible support!
