Fund for Teachers and Alabama Public Television invite Alabama’s preK-12 educators to submit their answers through an online application, due January 31,2013. If selected, individuals receive up to $5,000 and teaching teams $10,000 to make it happen.
Teachers can find out more about this opportunity for “DIY professional development” by visiting fundforteachers.org, or the nonprofit’s Facebook, Tumblr and Flickr pages.
