"With today being such a technological age, I want to make sure that my kids have the opportunity to experience that technology," said Powers.

Technology can pretty expensive, but Powers won't have to worry about it now that she has a big check to purchase supplies and resource materials that will help students succeed .

"The first one I get here was Nintendo and they love those because they think they're just playing games but they're math games and brain training activities to teach them memorization and things like that," said Powers.

She also received a grant to teach financial literacy to six grade students and an additional grant to purchase Kindle Fires used for reading and research projects.

"Central Park is a top gains school and it's because we are able to write these grants and get this money that we can get things in the hands of our kids that we would not be able to afford as a school otherwise," said Powers.
