My Students

My school is a Title I school with 100% of students receiving free breakfast and over 75% of students receiving free lunch. Many of my students worry about everyday needs. They don't have the tools for technology, exploration, and creative play at home. All of these things are vital for our youngest learners!

Although they may face challenges at home, they are so full of life and excitement about learning!

They walk in ready to learn and give me their best every day! It is my goal to empower my students to become critical thinkers and equip them with the skills they need to be 21st-century learners. The passion is there! We just need the tools to continue fostering the passion and bringing it to life! Thank you for your time and support!

My Project

The Ron Clark Academy trains teachers to teach in innovative and engaging ways. A trip to visit the Academy to learn from these master teachers will enhance my teaching and help me to build an engaging classroom and create a better school culture within our school community!

Teachers who have attended training at the Ron Clark Academy have called it a "life-changing" experience.

I am excited to have this experience for myself and bring what I've learned back to my school to share in peer-to-peer learning.

This project will make a huge difference in my life and the lives of my students! Using Ron Clark's methods will help me become a better teacher and transform my students into lifelong learners!
