Utilizing the Mabank Education Foundation Grant in my classroom has helped bring a relevance to my subject, and has helped world history students at MHS become immersed in the rich tapestry of ancient history.

The MEF grants have been an absolute godsend for me! I have received two different grants. As a result, my special learners are more independent and have more tools to help them deal with their sensory needs.

The grant opportunities from the Mabank Educational Foundation has allowed our students access to innovative learning opportunities that they would not normally receive in a classroom. Our Intermediate students now have the opportunity to participate in our annual Science Fair, learn to code by joining our Robotics Club, and help with the design of our outdoor learning environment. Thank you Mabank Educational Foundation for supporting our district, teachers, & students.

The preferred method for a student to read a book during Book Club is by utilizing the Kindles that were purchased through a grant awarded The Book Club at Mabank Intermediate therefore the line to obtain this device forms early and it is usually a long line with eager readers. When we need to add a book we can do so instantly and there is no fraying of the pages, torn or lost books. I personally believe they pay better attention because they don’t want to lose their place. We are blessed to have this asset for our young readers and appreciate the efforts of the grant committee to grant so many worthwhile grants to teachers to help enhance their classroom instruction. Mabank Rocks!

MEF has allowed us to purchase equipment to enhance several of our classrooms. We were able to purchase equipment with each grant that would specifically address our weaknesses within the class. This means in the yearbook class we can now have more students taking photos all the time to help us cover more events on campus. Through two different grants, we were able to put in place a recorded announcement session for our campus. This allowed the students the opportunity to be writers, editors, video producers, and performers for the campus. I have been very fortunate to see how my students have grown into better students and have become more involved in their learning in my class.
