March 2019 Recipient

Sarah Hamburg, a Spanish Teacher at Victor Schools, is the winner of March’s We Support Our Schools Grant, sponsored by A2Z Personnel and 107.9 the Drive. Sarah teaches a wide range of grade levels starting with her 4th grader’s introduction to Spanish and capping off with her highest level of Spanish IV in the High School. Sarah loves to include arts and crafts for her students as a way for them to connect with different Spanish speaking cultures. In addition, for each holiday that is recognized by a Spanish-speaking country, Sarah has activities to help bring that culture to life for her students. She is excited to be able to use the grant for purchasing more art supplies to engage her students in appreciating the different cultures around our world and to bring the Spanish language alive for them. We are so appreciative of the energy and creativity Sarah, and other teachers like her, bring to their classrooms. Congratulations Sarah Hamburg!

February 2019 Recipient

Jennifer Walthall is the winner of February’s We Support Our Schools Grant, sponsored by A2Z Personnel and 107.9 the Drive. Jennifer is a Kindergarten teacher at Stevensville Elementary School. Mrs. Walthall is excited to purchase hands-on tools to support her young student’s growth and development. She would like to incorporate more tactile learning by purchasing magnetic alphabets, felt boards, and counting activities. With this ongoing winter weather causing indoor recesses and eliminating outdoor learning expeditions, these new activities will be helpful in keeping her students engaged in the classroom. We’re very thankful to Jennifer and all teachers who continually look for ways to stimulate their student’s minds and make learning an awesome experience.

January 2019 Recipient

Congratulation to Kate Naughter the winner of January’s We Support Our Schools Grant, sponsored by A2Z Personnel and 107.9 the Drive. Kate, a sixth grade ELA teacher at Corvallis Middle School, is planning to use the funds to purchase student-selected books for her classroom’s library.

According to Lara Robb (an author of several best-selling professional books and resources for educators), access to books can make a difference in children’s desire to read and in their ability to comprehend a wide range of genres. David, an eighth-grade student, put it this way: “I love our class library ‘cause I have books at my fingertips. When I finish one, I can check out another.” (http://edublog.scholastic.com/…/ten-tips-laura-robb-classro…#).

Kate hopes to create a similar experience as David referenced for her students. Through engaging her student’s in book selecting and having the books not only readily available to them but also recommended by their peers, Kate anticipates seeing their reading development grow.

We are so thankful for all our local teachers do for our community and for educators, like Kate, who continually look for ways to engage their students.
