Fearless Teachers

South Carolina teachers are inspiring their students to live fearless.

Every fall, BlueCross BlueShield provides grants to teachers who want to turn their students into fearless learners.

Last year, with over 100 entries, BlueCross BlueShield selected several worthy teachers who are using their prize money to buy items that will create rich student experiences, from a rock wall to an indoor garden to electronic tablets. Check out their stories below.
