Congratulations to our 2019 Chuck Miller Teacher Grant recipients! Because of your generous donations, PEF has awarded 33 grants to PVPUSD teachers at 13 different schools in support of innovation in the classroom.

In 1990, Peninsula Education Foundation established the Chuck Miller Teacher Grant program due to the generosity of Chuck Miller, former Rancho Vista Elementary principal, past president of PEF and local business leader. PEF’s Chuck Miller Teacher Grants are an important resource for teachers to provide unique experiences and learning opportunities for students that are outside of the classroom budget.
