A couple of praiseworthy teachers in the Robstown Independent School District received a special gift Friday.

Miss Norma Cornejo was one of six teachers who received more than $1,000 courtesy of the Robstown ISD Education Foundation. The grants went to teachers in the district who created innovative classroom projects aimed at enhancing the learning environment for students.

"I've got a list of things we are going use it for. We are going to try to intergrate a lot more science," Cornejo said. "I'm really excited about getting science projects done. Maybe some science nights for our kids."

In all, six teachers were honored with grants on Friday.
