Danebo teacher Crystal Strege is celebrated by her loving students.

Brought to tears by winning a BEF grant, Danebo teacher Crystal Strege is celebrated by her loving students.

More than $26,000 was handed out in grants to Bethel teachers, courtesy of the Bethel Education Foundation.

The awards came as a surprise, with BEF Board members joined by a small band that marched down school hallways on the way to winners’ classrooms.

Nearly every Bethel school had at least one winner.

The funded grant proposals included Chromebooks, field trips, artists-in-residence, library books, iPads, special classroom materials and much more.

The Bethel Education Foundation was started by a group of active parents in 2009, dedicated to enhancing the education of Bethel children by supporting innovative and engaging experiences.
