The Dream Big Challenge is sponsored by Thank America’s Teachers and Farmers Insurance to show appreciation and support to educators throughout the country. This year, they will give away more than $1 million in education grants to teachers across America.
Thomas is in the running to be among five teachers selected to receive grants worth $100,000 each. The finalists are voted on by the public throughout October, and the five highest-scoring participants will be announced in December.
If she wins the $100,000 grant, Thomas plans to divide the money among Perry Township’s four kindergarten academies to purchase books and literacy resources to help young students.
Susan is the only finalist from Indiana, and you can help her win by voting online daily until Oct. 30. For more information, click here.
