“I was very happy to receive an Orange County’s Top Talent Arts Education Grant presented by The Foundation for Orange County Public Schools. As a new teacher to Apopka, the grant will allow me to pursue work with my students, I may not have had the funds for. I would like to thank Cindy Williams for her work with the Foundation. I would also like to thank Twanna Scroggins for all her help during the grant writing process. ” -2014
It is kind of nice, that there is somewhere to go in our county where we, as teachers, can get pet projects funded. Principal’s are often maxed out, no fault of their own.
The grant allowed me to fund projects for my 3rd, 4th and 5th graders. The kids, and I, truly appreciated the honor.
