    Don't thank to me. You earn it!

    Hello.

    Are the following sentences grammatically correct?

    "Don't thank to me. You earn it! But… you also know that the school gym needs to be repaired. We need new equipment for the chemistry lab, among many other things. We want to be sure that you will help us from your position at the Ministry to obtain funds over other schools. Are you still interested?

    At that moment, Kelly's face was transformed from joy to outrage. She stood up with her eyes turned into two flames and confronted the principal."


    Thanks.

    At that moment, the look on Kelly's face was transformed from one of joy to that of outrage. She stood up with fire in her eyes turned into two flames and confronted the principal.

    Two things.

    What is meant by "funds over other schools"? Getting money instead of other schools?

    Say:

    Kelly's face was transformed from one of joy to one of outrage.
