I love watching my students connect the dots; when they see the "why we are doing this" or "how they can use this in their future." That look in their eyes is what makes me excited to be a teacher.
Today's students thrive when they can learn in ways that best fit their learning style.
The traditional classroom doesn't work anymore. I am always looking for ways to personalize my classroom to fit the needs of every one of my students.
This project will help my students be successful in their futures. I will be using the funds for this project at Teacher Pay Teachers to help support other teachers just like me. This will provide resources for the variety of classes that I teach; from Personal Finance to Computer Science, Marketing to Business Law.
I will be able to purchase a variety of new projects to help my students showcase the things they have learned in class in new and amazing ways.
