Does this title have you scratching your head? We all know that 1+1=2, but for the students and staff in our program, we recently found 1+1=$500! Let me explain...
I will begin by telling you about the 1+1 program, 1+1 is a giveaway involving News Center 1 and First Interstate Bank. The two businesses have joined forces and are rewarding nominated teachers $500 for their classroom budget.
Several weeks ago, my younger sister nominated me for this opportunity and last week on Friday the 13th, I was chosen for the drawing! This means that the news crew and my little sister (see picture in my bio) surprised our math class with a $500 reward. I was flabbergasted to say the least.
As for how we are going to use the money, we will spend some on fun money for a field trip and we will spend the rest on needed classroom supplies, toiletries and other essential items. Below is a picture of me accepting the check for our program. I want to thank my sister Claire, News Center 1 & First Interstate Bank for making this all possible. Lastly I want to thank my students who inspire and energize me on a daily basis! Thanks to all :)
