Hononegah Board of Education Recognizes Teachers For Earning the Excellence in Education Grants-Bond





The Illinois Retired Teachers Association Foundation (IRTAF) awards nearly $36,500 in grant money to several public school educators (Pre-K through 12) statewide. IRTAF is affiliated with the Illinois Retired Teachers Association, a lobbying group for retired educators, with a current membership of over 38,000. On October 10, 2018, Anita Bond was awarded her IRTAF grant check. Below, you will find a summarized paragraph of the project. Anita Bond, Hononegah HS, Rockton ($286.50) Area 1 This system can be used in all of my courses and for a wide variety of interactive purposes. Furthermore, this system is easily movable among classrooms to be shared with other teachers. Finally, this program doesn't require teachers to program all game questions so it can be used for formative assessment quickly. The IRTA Foundation designed this program based on the idea that educators often do not have additional revenue sources available for unique student projects or classroom materials. This program allotted a total of $36,500 to Illinois public school educators for these purposes. Applicants were required to meet the proper criteria and to submit their proposals by early June. The IRTAF Board of Directors selected the grant recipients and awards are being presented now. The Illinois Principals Association played a vital role in assisting IRTAF with the promotion of this program.
