Education Grants Support Classroom Innovation

Innovation is a critical skill that allows us to build a bridge between dreams and reality.

Here’s how three teachers used SESLOC Education Grants to support innovation:

Monarch Grove Elementary School fifth-graders are launching a students-led company, thanks to teacher Sara Reiserer, who purchased a 3-D printer with the help of a SESLOC Education Grant. Over the next semester, students at the Los Osos school will consider global issues around them, then design and create a solution with the printer to sell for charity.

Monarch Grove Elementary School teacher Sunshine Frawley recently used a grant to introduce a light table to her TK class. A light table is a great addition to the classroom, enhancing lessons in math, literacy, and writing while developing imagination and cognitive skills.

Grover Beach Elementary School teacher Andra Fox recently used a SESLOC Education Grant to implement a phonics program for her first and second graders.

Thank you to Sara, Sunshine, and Andra for your commitment to innovative learning!

With our roots as a credit union for San Luis Obispo county educators, SESLOC has a strong commitment to education — and we support classroom learning, creativity and innovation through our Education Grants program.

Pre-K through 12th grade teachers and directors of enrichment programs at accredited schools within San Luis Obispo and Northern Santa Barbara Counties are invited to apply for grants up to $500 to fund special projects and expand classroom resources. Last year we awarded $20,000 in Education Grants to local schools.

SESLOC supports our community. Help us support local schools by sharing the grant application with Central Coast teachers or applying today.
