“I was very happy to receive an Orange County’s License4Learning Arts Education Impact Grant presented by The Foundation for Orange County Public Schools. As art teacher to Apopka Elementary, the grant will allow me to pursue work with my students, I may not have had the funds for. I would like to thank Deborah L. Pedraza for her leadership with the Foundation. A special thanks to Twanna Scroggins for all her help and support during the grant writing process. ” -2016-17
This was my second win, and it is an honor not to scrounge around for supply money, or take it out of pocket. This pet project allowed my kids a chance to Paint Large, like real studio artists do. The kids, and I, truly appreciated the honor.
