• Based on Google’s 10X, the 10X Teacher Inspiration Grant was developed to encourage teachers to submit creative and innovative ideas as to how they could increase their knowledge base, inspire their teaching, and augment student learning.

    Dr. David Clendening said, “This grant program will bring professional development to a new and exciting level.  We want to inspire teachers to make their classrooms 10 times better and we are willing to invest in that.”

    In the inaugural year, 33 FCS employees were awarded approximately $100,000 to explore and learn in 16 states and 5 countries.  These experiences will translate to powerful instruction and increased student engagement by bringing each encounter back to the classroom.
