Along with our national contest, the Association of American Educators holds many state-level competitions for scholarships and grants. We are pleased to announce the winners for AAE’s Wisconsin Teacher Scholarship and Classroom Grant award for spring 2015.
The Association of American Educators Foundation is committed to offering Wisconsin educators various avenues for improving their effectiveness and student outcomes. By doing so, we hope to increase the overall educational level of the state. The teacher scholarships provide teachers with funding to pursue additional teacher trainings, attend workshops, or specialized conferences. The classroom grants are offered to educators to supplement the costs of student-focused projects or activities. Both awards are available to all educators, regardless of school, subject, or membership status. We’re thrilled to honor these educators as we grow in the Badger State!

Sarah M. Binversie, Madison Elementary School: Attending the Teachers College Summer Reading Institute at Columbia University in New York, NY.
