Get My Teach On!

I need help covering the cost of registration, lodging, food, and transportation so I can attend the Get Your Teach On conference. This inspirational 2-day conference will provide me with ideas and motivation!

My Students

My amazing students live in a rural area, and more than half survive below the poverty line. My classroom is an inclusion class. This means that I teach students with disabilities along with their typically developing peers.

I learn as much from my students as they learn from me.

Despite the challenges my students face from learning difficulties, poverty, and living in the heart of the opioid crisis, they continue to have good attitudes. They are eager to learn. I want to fill their space with the tools that help them to have the same opportunities as children in more prominent areas. My students deserve every advantage.

My Project

This project will cover the cost of registration, lodging, food, and transportation so I can attend the Get Your Teach On conference. This is an interactive conference that puts you in the students’ shoes. The conference leaders provide plenty of motivational activities and strategies that you can take back to your students and colleagues.

I want to be surrounded by teachers who love their jobs as much as I do!

The energy that is at one of these conferences is electric! I want to surround myself with these inspirational people and learn from them!

I am willing to drive the 600 round trip miles and spend two days away from home because I believe that my students will benefit from this. Thanks for helping me with this opportunity!
