Teacher Development Grants from McCarthey Dressman Education Foundation

McCarthey DressmanIf you’re a licensed K-12 teacher employed in a public or private school looking for a way to improve your classroom instruction (yes, libraries are classrooms!), consider applying for a teacher development grant from the McCarthey Dressman Education Foundation.

The goal of the Teacher Development Grants is to support small teams of teachers in the formation and implementation of innovative K-12 classroom instruction. Teachers have the opportunity to reflect and write about their projects, as well as to share their results with other teachers. Last year’s grants funded a project to deepen content knowledge relating to Common Core standards for three rural Kansas schools, and the development of a workshop model to improve math instruction and curriculum at a Colorado high school. The Foundation awards grants to individuals in amounts up to $10,000 per year for a maximum of three years, provided the eligibility requirements continue to be met.

The grant application deadline is April 15; visit the Teacher Development Grant website for more information.
