Three Cheers for Three Years of Teaming Up With Teachers

Foundation Finance

The third annual Teaming Up With Teachers competition brought in a record number of teacher entries. This year 118 teachers entered to win by sharing a photo and story about their classroom and what they’d like to use the prize for if they win. Centra awarded $500 to the 4 teachers who received the most ‘likes’ on their submission through Facebook.

All the teachers who entered were surprised with a $50 gift card to help with anything they need for their classroom. To learn about how this competition worked you can read about it here!

The best part of Teaming Up With Teachers is knowing that these contributions will continue to impact the teachers and students of our communities long after 2019. We know how important that one special teacher can be for generations of students and we are so excited to do it again next year!  Please check out the four winning teachers and congratulate them by sharing this blog post on Facebook.”Thank you so much for this amazing opportunity! I am excited to start purchasing flexible seating for my classroom!”
