Teacher Projects Funded

Twenty-four Waterbury Public Schools teachers had their Donors Choose projects funded in full recently, through the generosity of Ripple, a San Francisco-based technology company who donated $29 million to DonorsChoose.org., funding every single classroom project request across the U.S. requested at that time. Here in Waterbury, 28 projects were funded, totaling $19,856. Donors Choose allows those who would like to support education on a classroom level to donate funds to projects that interest them.

Three Waterbury Public Schools teachers have been awarded grants for summer projects through Fund for Teachers.  Alison Kirchberger (Hopeville) and Doreen Lawson (Wilby) will travel to Czech Republic to study storytelling and memoir writing, while Matthew Weiner (Enlightenment) will travel to Thailand to study meditation in a Buddhist monastery. The national Fund for Teachers granted awards to 487 teachers this year, with 149 of those teachers being from Connecticut. The Dalio Foundation funds the Connecticut projects.
