TVTFCU Announces 2023 Teacher Grant Recipients
The Tobacco Valley Teachers Federal Credit Union (TVTFCU) in Enfield, CT is pleased to announce the recipients of their 2023 Teacher Grant Award. The credit union began this program in an effort to assist their members who are educators in funding equipment, supplies or training.
The recipients this year are Stacey Williams, STEM Instructional Coach at Clover Street School in Windsor, Connecticut and Karen Casale, Library Assistant at J.F.K. Middle School in Enfield, Connecticut. Ms. Williams is using her grant funds to purchase materials and supplies that will be used at the school’s STEM Carnival. The goal of the carnival is to bring educators, families, and students together to experience hands on education in the areas of science, technology, engineering, and math Ms. Casale is using her grant funds to purchase materials and supplies to make Creative Kids Community Kits that students can borrow from the school’s library. These kits will allow students to express their creativity in the areas of writing and art.
“With increasing restraints on budgets and funding for educators, we wanted to offer some assistance. Our grant is open to our members who are educators at schools within our field of membership. Two grants are available annually. It is our hope that this funding will add to the level of education that is offered to our area students.” said Lori Triba, Manager/CEO for the Tobacco Valley Teachers Federal Credit Union.
