“As a fairly new teacher, I have limited materials in my classroom. Ascension Fund provided me with the opportunity to expand on educational material and create an interactive learning environment. During the 2011-2012 School Year I received a grant funded by Ascension Fund for a listening center and interactive listening activities. The listening center provided students with the opportunity to enhance and reinforce literacy skills, which aided in improving students’ performance. The grant had an impact on the entire class and will continue to stimulate students throughout the following years.”
