My students are in a Title I preschool, many of them have a parent in the military. The children must meet at-risk criteria to attend this program. The criteria include family income, identified disabilities, parent employment, and English proficiency. I provide a creative classroom environment, with materials in the learning centers that are empowering students through art. I also provide science, technology, engineering, and math activities. I believe this will prepare all my students to be successful in kindergarten and beyond.
I am requesting the tuition for Component 4 of the National Board Certification process for Early Childhood Generalist. I will be working continuously over the next year, honing in on my educational practices, conducting student case studies, studying new national standards, and documenting the journey through educational videos and projects to better myself as a teaching professional.
Your donations to help me achieve National Board certification will impact my student’s lives!
This project will serve as a scholarship for me to go through arguably the most rigorous teaching evaluation process offered by a third party service called National Board. In this process I will fulfill 5 propositions: (1) be committed to students and their learning, (2) know the subjects I teach and monitor student learning, (3) think systematically about my practice and learn from experience, and (5) be a member of learning community. I must submit strong and rigorous artifacts and pass online assessments evaluated by the National Board in order to be certified. Artifacts consists of recorded classroom teaching video, student work, and more. Fulfillment of this project will help me grow professionally via this certification process. I want to become a more knowledgeable teacher, have greater skills to meet students' needs, and be more keenly aware of how my teaching practices affect all students.
