SEEF Awards $30,000 in Teacher Grants

NOVEMBER 9, 2018 -- Shakopee Public Schools would like to thank SEEF (Shakopee Educational Endowment Foundation) for awarding $30,000 in teacher grants. SEEF’s teacher grant program has awarded 488 teacher grants totaling more than $369,000 since its inception in 1992. 
“We are so grateful for the work of SEEF,” said Superintendent Mike Redmond. “Without them, rich learning opportunities in and outside of the classroom would go unfunded. The money they award through their teacher grants goes directly into our classrooms and pushes education forward in Shakopee. We could not be more thankful.”
Teachers from Shakopee Public Schools submit an application for a grant to fund projects and learning opportunities that might not be otherwise funded. “The foundation, in partnership with our teachers, will increase the creative use of technology, expand book collections available for students and enhance learning in science, art, math, music and language arts classes,” according to Pamela Wiger-Bukari, foundation chairperson.
