Elson receives $1,000 grant
CLINTON TOWNSHIP - An educator in the Clintondale Community School District is being recognized for making a difference in her fourth-grade classroom.
Rachel Elson is among 25 teachers in Michigan to receive the Lake Michigan Credit Union’s Roots in Education grant. She is the only teacher in Macomb County to receive the $1,000 grant this year.
“This grant means that I am able to give more opportunities to my students,” Elson said. “They will have books to take home this summer, more hands-on math centers, more SEL tools to help them succeed, and more ways to connect to their learning. I am so grateful that with your help we can help my students grow!”
Lake Michigan Credit Union received 415 nominations from students, parents, teachers, community members, and administrators sharing why their teacher is the most empowering.
The grant can be used towards anything that benefits the educational process, such as purchasing classroom supplies or aiding in online learning.
The nominations for 2023 grants will open in April 2023.
