The Montana Professional Teaching Foundation created the Karen Cox Memorial Grants to help. Named for the late Karen Cox, one of Montana’s great teachers, these grants are not intended to replace school funds but rather to support teachers who dig into their own pockets to help their students succeed.
The grants are small ($500 maximum) but mighty. In many cases, they purchase materials schools can use for years. from mfpe.org
Three Great Falls teachers have been awarded grants from the Foundation:
- Kristen Jacobsen, North & East Middle Schools.
These books will include primary reading books and authentic French stories such as
“Beauty and the Beast.”
- Dawn O'Leary and Jana Mora, Great Falls High School.
