My Students

Our classroom is a place for students to continually challenge themselves through authentic learning experiences. We incorporate technology in learning on a daily basis. Students have access to technology at a 1:1 ratio and use it to access reading resources, explore history, and create inventive student projects.

It is an incredible experience to see young people grow in part due to your instruction and support.

Making sure that our classroom is a place where students can experience success is very important to me.

My Project

Five years ago I was fortunate enough to be selected by my school to attend the TCEA conference in Austin, Texas. The TCEA conference is a wonderful opportunity for educators to share with and learn from fellow educators about how to effectively use technology in the classroom. As a result of my first visit I have integrated a 1:1 ratio of devices to students in my classroom which has greatly benefited my students.

I would like to attend the conference again this year to stay current on technology trends in education.

I am asking for financial support so that I can attend this year's conference and continue to implement innovative teaching in my classroom.
