Ms. Stutz Wins Teaching Tools Grant for Science, Technology, and Math
Ms. Caroline Stutz was recently featured in the Chestnut Hill Local after winning a grant for Science, Technology, and Math
Caroline Stutz, our sixth-grade homeroom teacher and upper-grade math teacher, has been awarded a Teaching Tools grant. The grant, given by the Armed Forces Communications and Electronics Association (AFCEA), totals $3,000 over a three year period. This award will allow OMC Parish School to improve its educational offerings in the science, technology, engineering and math areas.
“We are very proud of Ms. Stutz, and this grant recognizes her talents as a teacher, particularly in the areas of science and math,” Principal Hagy said. “We are thankful to the AFCEA for recognizing her talents as well.”
