Professional development

Because Wisdom Begins With Wonder

My Students

Our school is a magnet school in a large, urban school district. The school is an International Baccalaureate (IB) World School. As an IB program, we focus on global themes that students can relate to and want to know more about.

My students are eager to learn!

They come to school wanting to learn and ask lots of questions. They are curious about the world around them and are always eager to inquire and explore and apply what they learn to everything they do.

My Project

I plan to attend NCTE, National Council for Teachers of English, Annual Conference in Baltimore, Maryland. I want to learn and grow in my profession and this conference is top notch in the field of literacy. I have never attended. I have heard those that attend come back with an eagerness to share what they've learned.

I am always looking to implement new and innovative strategies in my classroom.

Reading and writing is my passion. I want my students to leave my classroom loving books, knowing authors and illustrators. My wish for my students is for them to love reading as much if not more than I do. I am looking forward to being able to attend in November of 2019!
