On September 13th, 170 awardees across 69 schools in San Antonio ISD were awarded New Teacher Grants. All recipients received their grant vouchers at the New Teacher Grant Reception at Mark Twain hosted by Firstmark Credit Union and the SAISD Foundation. Thank you to everyone who joined us, we are very excited to support these teachers in enhancing their classroom learning experiences.
In September 2016, 107 educators across 40 schools were awarded $100 New Teacher Supply Grants to support the 8,000 students they support. Teachers requested funds including: prototyping supplies, books to build classroom libraries, texts for guided reading groups, anatomy models, studio lamps, supplies for science experiments, math manipulatives, CD players and educational CDs for phonics, and sensory materials. Since fall 2007, the SAISD Foundation has awarded more than 1,000 new teacher grants to educators in SAISD.
