In case you missed my column on this last March, C.T. Sewell Elementary School in Henderson is everything you’d want a government school to be. High academic standards, strict discipline, teachers who care about the students more than the teachers union and a principal and staff who don’t whine about not having enough money and instead go out and raise it themselves to spend on the kids, their school and their education.
Well, one of the amazing teachers there, Brenda Moynihan, entered the “Dream Big Teacher Challenge” contest sponsored by Farmers Insurance Group” and has advanced to the final round in the Southwest Region.
If she wins, C.T. Sewell will receive a whopping $100,000 grant which will be used to “incorporate technology into Sewell’s classrooms and learning center so the school’s students – who rarely have access to computers or tablets at home – can more readily meet today’s academic expectations.”
Moynihan made it to the Final Three in the Southwest region. She’s up against one teacher from California and another from Arizona. The winner will be determined by how many votes each teacher gets from now until November 30…and you can vote once a day EVERY day.
Let’s help bring this home for Ms. Moynihan and the kids at C.T. Sewell Elementary. I’m including the link below and will include it in each newsletter from now until the contest ends. All you’ll have to do is click on the link, vote for Ms. Moynihan, confirm your vote by clicking on the link in the email you’ll receive each day, and…well, that’s it. That’s all there is to it.
