Innovative educators enhance student learning with AEP grant!

Alex Oklahoma May 26, 2022 – An AEP Teacher Vision Grant from Public Service Company of Oklahoma has enabled local educators to improve student learning in the classroom. 

Nicole Bauman and the teachers at Alex Elementary will use a newly received grant to teach special lessons year-round in science, technology, engineering, art, and math skills in an interactive way.  The grant awarded it $500. 

The AEP Teacher Vision Grant program provides aid ranging from $100 to $500 to classroom teachers.  “These grants are designed to reward the talents and creativity of Pre-K through grade 12 educators devoted to motivating youth to think creatively, to step into leadership roles, and to address the challenges of the future,” said Tim Hushbeck PSO External Affairs Manager.

Educators who live or teach in the AEP service area or in communities with major AEP facilities are eligible to apply for the mini-grants.  Projects that have an academic focus and a goal of improving student achievement are eligible for consideration.  AEP has a special interest in science, mathematics, technology, electrical safety, and the balanced study of energy and the environment.  

Each year, the AEP Teacher Vision Grant program awards up to $70,000 across the company’s 11-state service territory.
