For twenty-seven teachers in seventeen schools in the area, Christmas came in early November in the form of a check.  These teachers were awarded funding for the Bright Ideas project proposals they submitted earlier in the fall. They were selected from applications submitted to French Broad EMC for consideration.

The grants, in amounts ranging from $200 to $1,500, will help fund innovative ways to improve classroom instruction.  The grants will purchase supplies that are not affordable through normal school budgets, which typically are strained to meet the basic needs of teachers.
