Germanna's Kathryn Denner awarded Teacher Innovation Grant

The Orange County Educational Foundation has honored Germanna Community College's Kathryn Denner with a Teacher Innovation Grant.

She's one of six recipients of OCEF's first Teacher Innovation Grants. The six teachers were selected from among 25 Orange County educators who submitted applications.
The grants were designed to assist with the development of projects to increase student achievement, promote tolerance, and exhibit new technology in the classroom.
“The Education Foundation was glad to be able to award grants to strengthen the quality of education for students in Orange County,” said Sam Kessler, chair of the OCEF Teacher Innovative Grant Committee. “We are grateful to all the teachers who submitted grant proposals and look forward to offering additional grants in the 2011-2012 school year.
Winners of this spring’s teacher innovation grants will be honored at their individual schools and as a group at 2011-2012 Convocation Ceremonies. The recipients, representing five different schools and covering students from kindergarten through post secondary education include Denner, Vickie Baker of Orange County High School, Sarah Duffy of Locust Grove Middle School and Gloria Pullen, Sharon Mohrmann and Carolyn Herndon, all of Orange Elementary School.
