As a teacher in a district that has no money due to our social economic area this foundation is a life saver. Over the last few years with the help of the MTEF my class has stayed on the cutting edge of technology. When students have access to the current technology it enhances the science topics at hand and helps them understand the complex ideas more completely. My students are able to video tape events and then find out all the physics behind this real life issue. MTEF has also given funds to purchase new computers for the physics lab. As we all know when technology does not work it can be very frustrating specially when trying to learn a new topic. With funds from the MTEF students are able to use new computers with science equipment attached to take readings. As carts are flying across lab benches students see graphs appear in front of their eyes on the computer screen. It is hard to miss the physics happening when you see it in this format. Over the past few years Manchester Township High School science students have benefited greatly from the funds donated by the MTEF. It is nice to know there is a foundation out there that understands we need help to stay on the cutting edge and help our students achieve their ultimate goals.
Having written and received several grants from various organizations, I enthusiastically wrote a grant to the Manchester Township Educational Foundation for books and technology for our school media center. The process was thorough yet attainable, and I was delighted to have been awarded the grant! My students are enjoying the new equipment and books and I am grateful for the new teaching tools.
The MTEF is a wonderful foundation, directed by caring community members whose central focus is the students of our district. Their fundraising efforts have resulted in awarding grants to teachers for supplemental educational tools. Thank you MTEF for your dedication to the students of Manchester Township!
