Meet your Texas State Farm® Teacher Assist winners.

A $2,500 grant will bring each of their ideas to life.

Teaching during a pandemic poses many challenges. Teachers are adapting their methods to meet those challenges in unique and creative ways. State Farm Teacher Assist program grants will help 40 teachers across Texas boost their efforts. Each of their schools will receive $2,500 to implement their innovative ideas - a total of $100,000 to Texas classrooms.

Supporting teachers and schools helps the entire community. It recognizes education as a public good and helps address the societal impacts of COVID at the local level.

“As a company, we have a long history of working with teachers, educators, and students across the country. We are heartened by the immense response received from teachers sharing their solutions to overcoming challenges,” said Annette Martinez, State Farm Senior Vice President. “Congratulations to the winners. We are proud to support you and help you reach your goals!”

Soon, the winning teachers' stories will be shared here. Their passion to help students inspires us. We hope to foster a community and be a resource for teachers across the country.
