Innovation happens every day in classrooms and schools throughout California. Educators are often compelled to make the best of what they have (or don't have), frequently with spectacular results. If you know of a colleague who is particularly inventive, enterprising and effective in their work with students, let us know at, with "Innovator " in the subject line. Got a great idea and need help executing it? Educators can get support and funding for standout classroom and team projects through CTA Institute for Teaching (IFT ). IFT awards innovation grants directly to members and local chapters. All CTA members are eligible to apply for an Educator grant (up to $5,000) or an Impact grant (up to $20,000). Educator grants are for individual CTA members and generally affect a single class or program at one school site. Impact grants involve a project team of two or more CTA members; these grants generally affect more than one class, grade level, program or school. IFT grants are funded by CTA members' voluntary contri- butions. To date, members have funded 453 grant projects totaling more than $5.2 million. Applications are being accepted now; deadline is March 31, 2022. Awarded grants will be implemented in the 2022-23 school year.
