Roanoke Avenue Elementary School teacher Lisa Nappe was awarded an educational assistance grant by Tanger Outlets to fund her project “Making Sense of Math.”

“My grant project’s goal is to create a more engaging and positive learning environment to help my students bridge the gaps in their math achievements,” said Nappe. “I explained how math games, math manipulatives, toolkits, organization materials and a new easel would benefit students’ learning abilities and experience. With the grant, I can now purchase these resources,” she said.

Nappe was awarded the $1,000 grant from the program founded by Tanger Outlets in 1996. The program awards grants to teachers and educational leaders who propose projects to create a more inclusive and productive learning environment for all students.
