1. What is your creative idea to benefit your students, your class or your school? If you win this award, how will you make it happen using the funds from this award?
2. Will you take a continuing education class or classes to improve your own education and expertise (be specific) and how will that improve learning by your students, your school, or the community?
3. Will you purchase supplies for your students, classroom or school, and how will that help improve learning by your students?
