Working on preschool education
Farmerville Elementary School Pre-K teachers, Angela Hendrix and Andrea Mason, were awarded the Jane Herrin Mini-Grant this year at the 2011 Louisiana Early Childhood Association (LAECA) Conference in Alexandria. This grant was established as a tribute to Jane Herrin for her concerns for quality facilities and staff development. Each year up to $1,500 in mini-grants are awarded to early childhood teachers. Mini-grants can be used to enhance facilities or playground, staff development, special needs items, creative educational projects or to conduct research, which will enhance staff development of facility planning.
