Dream Big Teacher Challenge
A West Memphis teacher is among the 15 finalists in a national competition to win one of six $100,000 grants to help bring their dream educational proposals to life.

Launched at the 2015 Farmers Insurance Open in San Diego, Calif., the $100,000 Dream Big Teacher Challenge offers teachers a chance to compete for six $100,000 educational grants. As a finalist, West Memphis Teacher Marybeth Mugavin said she would use the money to develop a technology lab on campus and train teachers to effectively and efficiently tie the use of the lab into the overall classroom curricula. Almost 100% of the students that attend Weaver Elementary in the West Memphis community live in poverty and have little to no access to technology, Mugavin said.
