Teachers Awarded Money by Horace Mann
When FISD teachers want a little extra oomph for a project or initiative for their classroom, they sometimes turn to DonorsChoose.org. Congratulations to two Bright Academy teachers who were awarded funds this month thanks to the help of Bert Robinson of Horace Mann. Special education teachers Kelly Perry and Michelle Nickell had their projects chosen!
Those interested in looking to help teachers with projects can find Frisco ISD teachers on donorschoose.org.
