Two Teachers Awarded Learning Grants:
Founded in memory of long-time Murray Board of Education member Laura Baker, the aim of the Laura Baker Professional Learning Grant is to provide MCSD licensed professional staff with opportunities to attend conferences, workshops, or acquire training and new skills to help strengthen instructional methods. A review board chooses from applicants two deserving candidates who are then awarded their training opportunity expenses. This year’s recipients are Laurel Brown, Speech Language Pathologist RJH, MHS, Murray Adult Transition; and Amber Rydalch, MHS Instructional Coach. Ms. Brown attended the American Speech-Language Hearing Association Convention at Denver in November 2015; and Ms. Rydalch will be attending the Instructional Coaching Institute in July 2016.
