Donations to teachers

Farmers Insurance agent Kirk Towe presented Glenpool Elementary School teachers, Rachel Christy, Amber Robertson, Sarah Hallsted, Callie Alwardt, and Danielle Myers with $12,500 in educational grants as part of the insurer group’s Thank America’s Teachers program.

“Teachers across the country are so passionate about what they do, and they are committed to improving their schools in any way they can,” said Towe.

These pre-k and kindergarten teachers plan to use these funds in learning centers that focus on all STEM subjects and reading.

Christy, Robertson, Hallsted, Alwardt and Myers are in the first group of 60 winners to each receive a $2,500 educational grant from Farmers Insurance in 2017.
