Imagine a $500 shopping spree to buy items for your classroom!
One lucky ATPE professional member and two ATPE first-time professional members each received $500 as part of ATPE’s classroom makeover contest. Congratulations are in order to first-time professional members Jonathan Fisher, Wylie (14) ISD, and Julie Adams, Clear Creek ISD. Long-time member, Diane Hutto, Cypress-Fairbanks ISD, was also a winner.
Winner Julie Adams says she’ll be spending her money on books for her students. “I can't wait to give the students books they love to read that are just right for their age. I also hope to rearrange the room and create a reset location/reading nook,” says Julie. “As a first-year teacher, getting started was tough financially and this gave me the ability to create the classroom I desired when I started.”
Want to be a winner, too? Make sure you renew your ATPE membership for 2018-19 by Oct. 31, 2018, and you just might be next!
