I am very excited to be teaching at a new school this year. I am teaching first grade English- Language Arts to an amazing group of students. As shown with my school info, nearly all students come from a low-income family. I have learned that low-income does not speak of the quality of students. I have some very intelligent, very eager to learn students. Across the nation, schools are struggling to provide resources the students need due to state and federal budget cuts. My students deserve the best, and I am their advocate to make sure they get the best. We are making huge strides to improve in all aspects and the students deserve to have new books, new pieces of technology, and new life experiences to further help them succeed in school and life.
My school is a second year Leader in Me school. During the second year of implementation, the focus is on Wigs- wildly important goals. We attended a training yesterday and learned how to set these personal goals for ourselves that we will in turn model meeting our goals for our students, so they will be able to set and meet Wigs for themselves. We are focusing on personal goals for the first semester, so we can all build confidence together. My personal WIG is to learn how to be financially responsible. I have researched and found that Dave Ramsey has a solid financial plan for getting out of debt, saving money, and getting to the point of giving. I am asking for a Finacial Peace University learning kit and a set of MP3 audiobooks to reinforce my learning from the university. Being financially fit means you are practicing and living the 7 habits we are learning through Leader In Me. It’s important for me to have the resources to meet my WIG to show my students how to accomplish a goal. This project will also allow me to transfer some of the financial planning skills to my classroom. It’s never too young to learn how to be financially fit.
