LRNG Grant Featured in Huffington Post

The Huffington Post recently featured the LRNG Innovators Challenge grant, which elementary teachers at every BISD elementary school were fortunate to receive as part of BISD's partnership with Katie McKay and the Heart of Texas Writing Project. We were the ONLY district in Texas and one of only 10 districts in the country to receive this grant!

BISD's "Choice and Voice" grant teachers are Guadalupe Chavez, Brenda Cotto-Escalera, Nicole Craig, Kimberly Russell, Shirley Miller, Melissa Schlabach, and Meggie Smiley. Our curriculum specialists Debbie Wallace and Jennifer Greene-Gast work with these teachers as well to implement this exciting grant project in the teachers' classrooms and in other classrooms throughout the district.
