TVTFCU Announces Teacher Grant Recipient

The Tobacco Valley Teachers Federal Credit Union (TVTFCU) in Enfield, CT is pleased to announce the recipients of their 2021 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 Kara Forrest, 6th Grade Teacher at Suffield Middle School; Amy Dennis, Assistant Principal and KarenLynn Sargalski, Guidance Counselor at Prudence Crandall Elementary School in Enfield.

Ms. Forrest is using her grant funds to purchase multi-cultural literature that will introduce students to cultural diversity. Ms. Dennis and Ms. Sargalski are using their funds to purchase sensory tools to support learning. These tools will help students who are affected by trauma, anxiety and depression, learn independent coping skills and strategies to increase participation in a classroom setting.

“With increasing restraints on budgets and funding for educators, we wanted to offer some assistance. Our program 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.
