Leila Kubesch - Presenter
Author of numerous articles on grant writing, award-winning educator and has written successful grant proposals for over 20 years as a public school teacher. Teaching in inner city schools with limited budgets, she used grant writing to open the doors to huge opportunities for her students. Through these grants, she was able to lead transformative service learning projects, securing books for literacy programs, trips for her students and supplies for her schools leading a group of youth-at-risk students to transform into positive thinkers and successful students. Regardless of the size of the proposal or project, Leila has the ability to help writers learn how to achieve their goals through grant writing—in fact, she was able to teach her own 8th grade student to write grants and they too could fund their ideas. Leila’s additional strength in training comes from her insight into the grant reviewing process, having also served as a grant reviewer for the U.S Department of Education for Title II, III, V, & VII.
