TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WTXL) — A local classroom is getting a technology boost.

Lincoln High School teacher Marilyn Proctor-Givens just won $10,000 worth of new technology. It's all part of PCM-G's Star Teacher Awards Program.

Proctor-Givens won 10 Acer Chromebooks, 10 Acer tablets, and PCM Silver services. She and the high school will use that new tech to enhance digital learning through sharing, collaborating and discovering.

"We've been looking forward to possibly winning this so we can add to the first pot of money we won, so we can get a larger piece of equipment for our classroom," said Proctor-Givens. "Being able to buy a piece of equipment that is being used in the industry currently would be the ideal situation for my classroom."

Every quarter, PCM-G picks three teachers from across the country to highlight and customers vote on the one they think is the most deserving.

Proctor-Givens won back in the first quarter of 2018. Each of the four winners from last year were entered into the Grand Prize which Proctor-Givens was just awarded Tuesday.
