“Teachers spend quite a bit of their own money on supplies and resources for their classrooms, and as an elementary music specialist serving 450 students, it can really add up! I greatly appreciate the Elementary Music Teacher grant because it allows me to purchase a bigger ticket item to benefit my AK though fifth graders.”
