Amy Fischmer, a teacher at Prince of Peace Schools, is the recipient of a 2013 MAC Grant from McDonald's Restaurants of Kentuckiana.

The MAC Grant program rewards teachers for creating innovation and creativity in the classroom by providing funding for hands-on learning activities.

The MAC Grant program provides up to $500 to middle school teachers for creating interactive educational projects for their students. This year, McDonald's Restaurants of Kentuckiana awarded more than $11,000 in grant money to area teachers.

Fischmer is using the MAC Grant so her students will be able to build clay sculptures.
