NEA Foundation funds Duluth educator grant for $5,000

Chattahoochee Elementary is set to receive a multi-sensory math program for students with math disabilities thanks to a grant from the NEA Foundation.

Diane Rice, a special education teacher at Chattahoochee in Duluth, and partner Alexandra Prosser have received a $5,000 Student Achievement grant from the NEA Foundation. This grant will introduce TouchMath to their school.

“My colleagues and I have a strong belief that all children can learn … but not in the same way,” Rice said in a press release. “We must find out how each of our students learn and then locate the tools that work. TouchMath is based on research and on what we know about how children learn.”
