Johnson Crossing Teacher Receives Donors Choose Grant

Guy Whitman has taught Social Studies for the past 23 year years. This school year he decided to try something different and is now a 6th Grade Language Arts teacher. In anticipation of his move, Whitman needed some new books for his new classroom. He wrote a grant via Donors Choose for educators for the purchase of several popular novels that he could use with his students for literature enrichment in his classroom. After the grant was completed and uploaded to Donors Choose it was seen by a representative from the Bill Gates Foundation. Whitman was able to purchase over $700.00 worth of brand new novels for his students and last week they began their first literature unit to utilize them.
