Two Teachers Honored By Having Mortgages Paid For a Year

Posted By on Tue, May 27, 2014 at 9:15 AM

There are many ways to thank a teacher: an apple, a heartfelt thank-you note, or if the teacher is really lucky, a bonus. But two teachers, one from Oregon and another from Washington, have been told that they won't need to drain their bank accounts to pay their mortgages during the next school year.

Susan Bartley, an English teacher at Portland's Franklin High, and Elizabeth Lawson, a fifth-grade educator at Crestline Elementary in Vancouver, Wash., each received the honor from a local credit union as part of its OnPoint Prize for Excellence in Education.

In addition to taking care of their mortgages, the OnPoint Prize will award $1,000 to each of the teachers' schools for supplies.

OnPoint was established by teachers in the 1930s to celebrate great educators.
