I wrote a grant through a local organization for the new iPad and I found out today that I received the grant. I am pumped!! The funny thing was - the letter was addressed to a colleague who had also written a grant, and she came to me and said there was a mix-up. She said she was supposed to get the iPad and I was supposed to get a document camera (that was what it said on her letter). I was sure the iPad was for me, and told her I could show her my grant application. I heard through the secretary later that there was a mix-up on her application, and the iPad was mine! Hurray! My principal went to Best Buy at lunch and bought a case. I won't get the iPad until the end of the June, though, because our IT dept. has to do something with it.
Get out there and write those grants people!!
