TVTFCU Announces Teacher Grant Recipients
The Tobacco Valley Teachers Federal Credit Union (TVTFCU) in Enfield, CT is pleased to announce the recipients of their 2022 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 Taryn Jennings, Language Arts Consultant at Enfield Street School and Jane Vyce, Speech/Language Pathologist at East Windsor Middle School.
Ms. Jennings is using her grant funds to purchase a Little Free Library which will be installed outside of the school to allow students access to books in order to inspire them to become life long readers. Ms. Vyce is using her grant funds to purchase speech therapy materials including vocabulary, language and reasoning books and photo cards. These will help students who are affected by skill deficits by increasing their vocabulary and grammar skills which will lead to improved comprehension of spoken and written materials.
“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.
