Tea Area High School teacher among winners of 'Adopt a Classroom' contest
Sioux Falls Federal Credit Union made good on its promise to give area teachers the tools they need to succeed.
Tuesday, it announced the first of several teachers selected in its annual "Adopt a Classroom" contest.
Tea Area High School Science teacher Travis Ehrisman was among 100 area teachers nominated.
And he was pretty humble about the $500 award.
"I think I could always be better, and so this is kind of one of those good nudges that you're doing the right thing, you're going in the right direction -- keep going, don't stop, keep bettering yourself," he said.
Ehrisman said he will use the money to purchase additional physics equipment for the classroom.
