My Students

My classroom of 26 students is a part of a school that serves around 95% of its student population with the free and reduced lunch program. Our Title I school is populated with about 1400 students of different cultural, racial, and ethnic backgrounds. My class consists of students who identify themselves as Asian, Black, Latino, Bi-racial and White. My classroom services the students with special needs within a general education classroom.

For many of my students, school is the only place where they have consistency and stability.

My 3rd graders are eager to learn, and they all learn in different ways. It's amazing to watch them grow at their own pace. They each possess different qualities which make them a vital piece to our classroom community!

My Project

The GYTO national conference is a four day professional development where educators get to together to learn how to create rigorous, engaging lessons for students! The GYTO national conference has speakers from across the country that present lessons that help educators teach students about diversity, financial literacy, and allows for students to build on their 21st century skills.

Attending this conference in Orlando in 2020 would allow me to gain additional strategies and resources that would encourage learning throughout my school.

I am constantly looking for innovative, research-based, best-practices applicable in third grade classrooms. There are so many ways to engage kids and the educators at the Get Your Teach On! conference in Orlando, Florida bring a wealth of ideas, experiences, and passion. This project covers the cost of registration for this conference.

Being a veteran teacher, the best way to grow as an educator is to always keep learning and tweaking your art.These educators inspire me, and I am excited for a chance to be a life-long learner with them.I am thrilled to learn how to connect, engage, and improve instruction by joining other teachers at the Get Your Teach On! conference.I would love to be able and attend so that I can continue adding to my "toolbox" and continue to create engaging lessons for my students. Please consider helping me to achieve this goal! Attending this conference will help to continue feeding into my love for education and provide opportunities for professional growth to better meet the needs of my students for years to come!
