The elementary school students at my school are unlike students anywhere else in the world. They are uniquely wonderful in all aspects of their being. They attend a Title I school in a rural area of North Carolina. In the past year, our school has implemented an intervention block, club day, and AVID, broadening our student experiences and creating new and exciting learning opportunities. Our goals this year are especially targeted on closing the achievement gap through access to materials and resources.
This fall, I will attend the NCAEE (North Carolina Association of Elementary Educators) conference which helps for elementary educators to reflect on their practice. This conference directly correlates to my job and will help me to effectively facilitate instruction for both teachers and students. Attending this conference will help me to collaborate with teachers at my school by integrating informational skill building and content teaching. In return, students will work on and produce projects using a variety of instructional practices. Attending this conference will greatly influence my teaching and my ability to relay local and state history to my students.
As a lifelong educator and student, the most defining moments of my educational career have involved engaging in professional learning communities and exposing students to new ideas.
For the students in my school community, one of the most difficult issues that they face is the lack of exposure to local, state, and global experiences. Attending this conference will give me an opportunity to become a more reflective practitioner and to participate in a statewide PLCs. (Professional Learning Communities)
