Beth Chaney, a first grade teacher at Runnymede Elementary School, was the recipient of a $500 grant in BGE’s Bright Ideas Teachers’ Grants program.
These grants support teachers working to expand innovative ideas for academic enhancement and workforce development in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM). K-12 classroom teachers at schools located within BGE’s service area are eligible to apply for the grants, which award up to $500 to support in-classroom projects that support science, innovation, energy efficiency, or the environment.
Martin Tierney, principal at Runnymede Elementary, shared, “I am very proud of Mrs. Chaney for taking the initiative to pursue this wonderful opportunity for her students.”
Chaney will use her grant to fund technology in her classroom.
