Inspirational Teachers

We’ve traveled up and down the state to speak with teachers and administrators to find out exactly how they are using their Lottery funds. During these visits we’ve met the best and brightest public school teachers and we wanted more. Read their inspiring stories, and if you’re a school administrator click on the module to the right and send us other stories!
