My students are amazingly gifted second and their graders. They inspire me every day and I am constantly learning with and because of them. Teaching is a passion of mine but my job is even more rewarding because of my experiences with my students every year.
I strive to learn more and be a better teacher every year and want to be the best-prepared teacher I can be for my awesome students.
In order to be prepared I need to be able to prepare and type up lesson plans, research lesson ideas online, track the needs of all my students, especially those that are struggling or gifted, and continue to take advantage of professional development opportunities.
My students come to class each week ready to work hard, learn, and support each other. It makes me feel so wonderful when at the end of the day they choose to give their personal thank you to me, their teacher for simply teaching them. All of my students deserve a caring and dedicated teacher and I want to ensure that I can be that for them every week.
I have recently completed a positive discipline in the classroom training and I need an iPad mini to help me continue to learn more about positive discipline and how I can continue to integrate it into my classroom to become a better teacher. I also want to learn more about growth mindset to help my students help develop their confidence and emotional wellness. Many positive discipline and growth mindset resources are provided online but I can't access them effectively.
My old iPad will be used by students to complete coding activities in the class and I would like a smaller iPad mini to access my professional development sites and resources from both home and my classroom.
Teaching is my job and my passion and I choose a professional development goal for myself each school year. Last year I wanted to integrate a more positive discipline mindset in my classroom to focus on student mindfulness and emotional wellness. This has made a tremendous impact in my classroom and I want to continue integrating this into my classroom for next school year. This year I have been focusing on introducing goal setting and growth mindset to help my students continue to develop their mindfulness as well as peer to peer learning.
Please help me have access to the many amazing resources online so that I can help my students continue to improve their mindfulness and emotional wellness as lifelong learners.
