Teacher Wins $10K Classroom Grant

Yesterday, a 3rd grade teacher in Galloway, N.J., walked out of what she had assumed was a regular school Veteran's Day assembly with a $10,000 check, according to Galloway Patch.

Terry Dougherty was the winner of the first Great American Teach-Off, sponsored by GOOD and The University of Phoenix. Dougherty, who began a free tutoring program for military children, was chosen over nine other finalists in a public online vote. The contest sponsors surprised her with the hefty classroom grant during the assembly at Roland Rogers Elementary School.
