My Students

Our school is a 3-5 Intermediate school in a rural district. We have the pleasure of teaching 3 classes of awesome energetic, enthusiastic, and hardworking 3rd grade students. Our students come from all different types of backgrounds, which makes our classrooms very unique. Our school district has also recently moved to attendance centers, so our students are getting to know other students from surrounding communities. Our 3rd grade team loves to combine our 78 students to create highly engaging activities!

My Project

Ron Clark Academy is known to have highly engaging teachers and lessons. At the Ron Clark Academy training I will be able to learn from the best. I will be able to bring back highly engaging lessons and room transformations. My goal is to have my students engaged every day at school. We currently cannot afford to send our students on field trips. I would love to be able to go to Ron Clark Academy and bring back strategies and methods to “take” my students out of the classroom without actually leaving. My current 3rd grade team would love to build collaboration and unify to better help our students love school and learning.
