I need to attend this professional development. Effective professional development enables educators to develop the knowledge and skills they need to address students' learning challenges.
My students are a group with diverse learning capabilities. I enjoy every day that I come to work because no two days are the same. I am a special education teacher at a fantastic elementary school. The campus that I serve on is a Title I campus, which means the majority of our students are economically disadvantaged and are not exposed to many things outside of opportunities afforded to them via school activities. My responsibility is to bridge any gap that any students encounter, whether it is cognitively or emotionally. When it comes to assignments some can be very mundane and monotonous so I try to add some spice things via throwing technology in, or having them to organize their thought process on a graphic organizer, or even throw in a board game. My students respond really well to the variety of ways that I teach them concepts, they are always very courteous and grateful which warms my heart!
"What the best and wisest parent wants for his own child, that must the community want for all of its children.”Research confirms that the most important factor contributing to a student’s success in school is the quality of teaching. The most effective professional development engages teams of teachers to focus on the needs of their students. They learn and problem solve
together in order to ensure all students achieve success.
This course helps me as an educator learn to help students build foundational skills for oral language, vocabulary, world knowledge, and working memory. Coursework focuses on lessons and activities for developing vocabulary and metacognitive skills to reinforce decoding and fluency.
