Mrs. Sue Grodek, 1st grade teacher at Brooklyn Elementary School, was recently funded a grant through Donors Choose. She submitted a grant titled “Listening to Literature” that would enhance the student reading experience in her classroom. The grant would provide Kindles, portable CD players and head phones so that student could read and listen to literature throughout her classroom. The Kindles would allow the students to access the vast number of books from our Brooklyn Public Library as well. This is the third grant Mrs. Grodek has received funding through Donors Choose. The district is proud of Mrs. Grodek’s initiative with this grant and how she is supporting the development of her students’ early literacy skills.
