On the last day of class before Christmas break, several teachers of Poth Independent School District (ISD) were surprised with a gift of their own during the Poth Education Foundation’s first annual Admiral Award Parade and Ceremony.

Teachers were awarded a cumulative amount of $15,000 in grants during the district’s Christmas celebration.

The Poth Education Foundation launched its inaugural campaign back in October and, through tremendous support from donors, hard work of community volunteers, and tireless efforts from faculty of the district, was able to see its mission of enhancing the learning experience for its students come to fruition.

Teachers and administrators were invited to submit a grant application to the Poth Education Foundation that revealed their plan to better the learning environment in their classroom through the use of innovative technology and tools. After a grueling selection process, the committee reviewing the applications selected the following teachers as the first annual recipients of funds to help them achieve their goal.

Recipients include:

•Lisa West -- kindergarten, first and second grades -- intervention station laptops

•Shawn Nelson -- third grade Language Arts --remote control of Toshiba Hybrid

•Lorelei Rodgers -- third, fourth, and fifth grades -- response through intervention in math desktops

•Rhonda Kallies and Tanya Climer -- third, fourth, and fifth grades -- response through intervention in reading desktops

•Lisa West -- fourth grade Gifted and Talented -- Lego robotics

•Tara Loeffler, elementary campus -- science equipment for fifth grade and science storage

•Kimberly McClure -- eighth grade -- graphing calculators

•Lynette Melton, 10th, 11th, and 12th grade physics and IPC -- iPad 3s with retina display.

“In our first year as the Poth Education Foundation, we have not only added necessary funding to our school, but also have allowed teachers to reach their goals and advance education for our students,” said Jackie Kutac, president of the Poth Education Foundation. “We are excited to serve both the educators and community partners and look forward to the continued success of the foundation for the district.”

The charge of the Poth Education Foundation has been “Charting the Course for Excellence,” and by bringing together community innovators, educators, leaders, and learners, they have been able to reach the united goal of enriching teaching, inspiring learning, and maximizing opportunities for all students at Poth ISD.
