My Students

I am currently in my 5th year teaching a wonderful group of students that participate in both pull-out Special Education and co-taught grade level curriculum. This has allowed me to not only work closely with my students, but with all of the 4th and 5th-grade students and teachers within my district. My students have varying abilities and motivational levels, and come from many different backgrounds.

My students are eager to learn and need the content that they are learning taught to them in a way that they can relate to.

Just reading from a textbook or completing a worksheet isn't always enough, they need hands-on, relateable tasks that help them see the importance of what they are learning. It is my job as their teacher to provide them with the best teaching experience possible. To make this possible, it is critical that I keep up to date with best practices and strategies that will engage my students and make them enjoy learning!

My Project

This 2-day conference was created by teachers, for teachers, to provide numerous ways to engage students in learning! This conference will provide me with new and engaging ways to reach my students on a daily basis.

Attending a conference with like-minded educators will not only motivate me, but also empower me to step out of my comfort zone and create dynamic lessons that will engage and challenge my students to do their best!

Presenters will provide examples of best practices they use within their own classrooms to create an engaging environment for all learners. They will present using these strategies, so I will get to see how to implement these strategies first hand.
