Classroom Cash

Classroom Cash Winner

And the winner is…..

Mrs. Hansen’s First Grade!

The Classroom Cash Grant is a way for teachers to be awarded up to $100 for being such an important figure in our children’s lives.  Black Hills Family introduced this application process in our Fall issue as a way to support creative endeavors that enrich and enhance student learning.  This grant will provide the selected educators with the funds to be used towards helping our students learn outside of the box – both creatively and practically.

Carey Hansen is a first grade teacher of 24 students at General Beadle Elementary School in Rapid City.  “I am currently working on my Masters in Education and focusing my research this  year on Movement in the Classroom,” said Carey.  “Trough this research, I know how essential it is for students to move throughout the day.  These [alternative seating options] will help my students who need that constant movement.”

Carey will be receiving funds to help provide her students with  wiggle seats and stability balls.
