In Silicon Valley, successful companies innovate. We believe the same principle applies to successful teachers.
Since 2005, Silicon Valley Education Foundation (SVEF) has provided Teacher Innovation Grants to empower Silicon Valley educators with the extra resources they need to create new and exciting learning experiences for their students.
