Professional development

Because Jen Jones Said So

I need help to give my students the best possible literacy experience.

My Students

I have been in my third-grade classroom for two years now. My students come from diverse backgrounds, but we become a family once they enter the classroom. My students learn to develop a growth mindset to where they discover the possibility of "yet".

My goal is for my students to enjoy spending time at school.

I desire for my class to be a place where all students are welcomed and love. I also want students to grow in their passion for literacy. This is a life skill I want for them to continue past their time in my classroom.

My Project

Jen Jones offers the best literacy professional development for teachers. She teaches educators ways to help students at all levels to be successful. As an educator, I am certified to teach kindergarten through sixth grade. I want to attend an early childhood event to help me teach students who struggle with reading and writing. I would love this opportunity to learn more effective strategies to use in my classroom.

As a result of this professional development, I will be able to plan better literacy lessons for all of my students.

I have learned many strategies to teach my students from Jen Jones. I would love the opportunity to learn more! She is truly a master at literacy instruction.
