Active Teachers Receive Help from Beta Zeta in 2020
Our active teacher members were offered funds from Beta Zeta to purchase items for simultaneously teaching face-to-face and virtually while enhancing safety and success for all during the pandemic. Valerie Bonn, Suzanne Christian, Jennifer Fridell, Stephanie Gonzales, Donna Itz, Christa Klaerner, Amber LeMaster, Kyla West, and Michele Willis received $50 each for learning materials and supplies to make distance learning and classroom instruction work more smoothly for teachers and students. Materials included cleaning supplies, a face shield, colored pens, a transitional computer desk, balls for the playground, and a Teachers Pay Teachers gift card. In addition, through the "Beta Zeta of DKG" Facebook community, many members of our chapter donated to current teachers who are not DKG members. Teachers posted their Amazon Wish Lists on the community page, and Beta Zeta members made their wishes come true. These lists are still posted if members wish to contribute.
Our president Amy O'Neil's new motto:
"In Support of Educators, Now and Forever!"
Dr. Annie Webb Blanton, DKG Society Founder, 1929
"The best feature of Delta Kappa Gamma is the new friendships which it brings. I value yours."
