PEORIA (Heart of Illinois ABC) - Going beyond the book is nothing new for Dunlap Valley Middle School Science teacher Julie LeMasters.

Instead of reading text, she digs into her own pockets to provide hands-on activities for her students.

On this particular day, a lot is going on at the school.

The girls 8th grade basketball team, found themselves preparing for what would be a victory in the State Championship game.

Little did she know, she too would be a big winner on this day.

Through all the excitement and shock of winning the $1,000 grant courtesy of Heart of Illinois ABC and CEFCU, LeMasters expressed her of science as something near and dear to her heart.

“Science is the most important, it’s the one thing in life that never stops. You use science in so much, and so I am super lucky to have such a supportive team that lets us do hands on and wonderful things and amazing kids to work with.”

LeMasters follows another One Class a Time grant recipient.

She actually submitted her vote for Nina Andrews at Dunlap Middle School.
