Here is an inspiring story from one of last years grant winners
MISD teachers are making a difference in the lives of their students with the help of the MEF!
Grant recipient instills love of reading in Kindergartners at Price T. Young. With the help of the Marshall Education Foundation, Michelle Bruce, Kindergarten Teacher at Price T. Young, created a Listening Center in her classroom. Over the course of two years, Mrs. Bruce has been able to purchase the CD player device, three sets of headphones, and numerous sets of books. The students listen to the story and follow along in a book which helps them with word recognition, pronunciation, and develops a great foundation as the young students learn to read.
When asked about the listening center, one student replied, “We read every day and we like all the books. We like to read and it’s good to read because you can learn all the stuff and you can know everything in the whole wide world.”
