Innovative Educator Enhances Student Learning with AEP Grant
An AEP Teacher Vision Grant from the SWEPCO-VALLEY District has enabled a local educator to improve student learning in the classroom.
Mrs. Gwendolyn Hamilton, JAG Specialist for Jobs for America’s Graduates, received a $500.00 Grant which will allow JAG to continue to offer services to young people with barriers to become successful and become college and career ready upon graduation from high school.
JAG believes that…
…students and graduates are capable of extraordinary accomplishments once they realize the future relevance of what they are learning and will exceed expectations when challenged and stimulated.
…graduates can and will change the world!
…JAG is needed more than ever!
The AEP Teacher Vision Grant program was launched in 2003 to provide aid ranging from $100 to $500 to classroom teachers. “These grants are designed to reward the talents and creativity of Pre-K through grade 12 educators devoted to motivating youth to think creatively, to step into leadership roles and to address the challenges of the future,” said Barry Schumann, AEP senior community relations consultant.
Educators who live or teach in the AEP service area or in communities with major AEP facilities are eligible to apply for the mini-grants. Priority is given to educators who have attended AEP Workshops for Educators, National Energy Education Development (NEED) Project training or who are affiliated with an AEP school-business partnership. Projects that have an academic focus and a goal of improving student achievement are eligible for consideration. AEP has a special interest in science, mathematics, technology, electrical safety and the balanced study of energy and the environment.
