FCEA Grants Awarded to BSHS Teachers
Shelli Warburton and Michelle Dexter both received a $250 grant from FCEA, Fayette County Education Association. There were over 40 applicants and we each won 1 of the 13 presented grants.
Shelli Warburton: "My $250 grant will be used towards the Freshman Academy Algebra 1 PBL field trip to Adrenaline in the spring. Fall semester students will design fundraisers to be able to raise enough money to take the field trip. They will present their fundraising Shark Tank style using Linear functions. In the spring on the actual field trip students will collect data jumping on the trampoline, write a quadratic function that represents their jump, and then calculate the maximum height they jumped."
Michelle Dexter: "My $250 grant will be used to purchase a color printer and laminator to make communication pictures to help nonverbal students communicate. Many of the students I work with are not able to use their voices to communicate and have significant learning disabilities. They need picture cards to be able to ask and answer questions and to express their basic wants and needs. This printer and laminator will help drastically with these students."
