Montgomery Catholic Preparatory School sixth grade teacher Mrs. Shelley Herbek was honored at a recent reception hosted by the Junior League of Montgomery as one of the Innovative Teachers Initiative grant recipients. Mrs. Herbek was one of six teachers in the River Region to receive a $500 grant from the Junior League of Montgomery for their first annual award program. The winning grants must be used for innovative projects, have real world application, enhance school curriculum, and have a direct impact on students. Mrs. Herbek plans to use this grant to purchase manipulatives, interactive software, and books for the award-winning St. Bede Science Olympiad team.
