T.L. Weston's Eva Butler Awarded Classroom Grant
Eva Butler, an 8th grade science teacher at T.L. Weston Middle School, recently received a classroom grant from the Mississippi Professional Educators (MPE). A resident of Cleveland, Eva has been a member of MPE since 2011. She plans to use her grant funding for a project entitled “3D Modeling in Science.” This project will allow students to use 3D models to investigate the continental drift, sea floor spreading, and plate tectonics.
Founded in 1979, MPE is a statewide professional association with approximately 14,000 teachers, administrators and non-certified staff from kindergarten to graduate school level. Our top priority is the education and achievement of students. MPE awards up to $40,000 in classroom grants to MPE members who wish to enhance instructional offerings or educational experiences for their students.
