Area teachers receive grants from OGE Energy

MOORE — Three Moore school teachers are among the 35 OGE Teacher Grant winners across the company’s service territory in Oklahoma and Arkansas.

Lois Sturch from Bryant Elementary will use her funds to help her second-graders learn about engineering and sustainable energy sources.

“It is important that students think critically and logically to find solutions to real life problems,” Sturch said. “Creative thinking, recognizing and analyzing information, making predictions and finding solutions are all skills that will help develop resourceful and prepared citizens for the 21st century.”

Delynna Kelley, a teacher at Southmoore High School, will have her fourth-graders read the non-fiction book, “Left for Dead: A Young Man’s Search for Justice for the U.S.S. Indianapolis,” by Pete Nelson. Kelley will use the book in conjunction with the movie “Mission of the Shark: The Saga of the U.S.S. Indianapolis.” Students will learn to use didactic literature to comprehend rhetoric, character development and research.

Adrienne Hawkins, a special education teacher at Santa Fe Elementary, will use music in her class project from Frog Street Press. The program will focus on literacy, language development, phonological awareness, reading left to right, rhyming words and visual discrimination exercises.
