Teachers have one of the toughest jobs.
And a global pandemic has created countless challenges for classrooms and educators.
On behalf of our sponsors, Continental Cement, Green America Recycling, and Doors 'N More, KHQA is proud to once again to award an excellent educator through our One Class at a Time initiative.
Monroe City pre-school teacher Sarah Clark is one of many educators who has tried to do what they do best during the COVID-19 pandemic.
It's hard to socially distance and keep everything clean and safe for the kids. So I've had to really look at what we can use or do I have to put away right now.
Clark understands the importance of play for a young child's development. That's why she wants to buy toys that are easy to clean. And her new one thousand dollar grant will help her do just that.
Some of the things in past years we've had to put up. They are still learning and coming to school as much as we can. We are having to adapt. But this grant will help us get more toys so we can be successful.
With 20 kids in the classroom eager to learn, Clark won't be wasting any time. She hopes to acquire new COVID-friendly toys soon.
We are going to get the toys ordered, get them in the classroom so the kids can start using them before school is out for the school year. I want to thanks those donors that help us. It helps out school and pre-school program, the money you have donated.
If you are a teacher and would like to apply for the grant, just fill out the application on our website.
