We are educators. We tend to be modest. We aren't worthy of a grant. Nothing special going on here! Nope.
Guess what? You are doing great things. You are engaging kids in content. You are teaching them how to create their own content. You are teaching them how to be kind, knowledgeable human beings. You are helping to raise an entire generation! You are worthy. Someone is going to win that grant award...why not you and your students?
So, I realize that a school year is ending. But, a new one is going to begin before your grade book even has time to cool. A new school year...a fresh start. In the process of your end-of-year reflection, what is one project, lesson, special event or activity that could use some extra funding? Think about it. There is money out there...and the money will be awarded for a school project, somewhere.
Keep an eye on @PitchThisEDU on Twitter for weekly posts highlighting grant opportunities with upcoming deadlines. If you need encouragement, help, or a bit of a push in the right direction - reach out to me...I have written a few EDU pitches and am happy to help - firstname.lastname@example.org.

I see opportunities come across my screen...a lot. I have acted on some, but not all. So, I started a collection. A collection of EDU opportunities. I share my collection @PitchThisEDU. Pick one and apply. Let me know if you need help. BTW - I'm a teacher, [purposeful] writer, tweeter. -Jen Hesseltine (@jenhesseltine)
