SESLOC’s roots are in education, which is why we’re committed to celebrating local teachers by offering unique resources and financial services tailored to their needs.
Here are some ways we support teachers in (and out of) the classroom:
Teachers often dig deep into their own pockets to provide enrichment opportunities for their students. These unique learning opportunities have a tremendous impact on students’ development, which is why SESLOC offers Education Grants up to $500 to help teachers go above and beyond the curriculum.
In 2019, we approved $20,000 in Education Grants to support projects like these:
- First graders at Georgia Brown Elementary wrote and published their own hardcover books.
- Santa Lucia Middle Schoolers beautified the campus with a succulent garden in a lesson that merged art and environmental science.
- Maple Continuation High School students volunteered with special needs kids at Project Surf Camp.
