My Students

I teach 4th grade at an affluent school. I have a variety of students that all have many different needs! This typically includes students with special needs, English as a second language, highly proficient learners, and students with emotional needs. My students love to be creative, sing while we learn, move as much as they can when they learn, and always have so much energy! Every school year I always have an amazing group of unique learners that keep me on my toes and I love to find many new ways to teach them. Most of all, they are all very kind and have the biggest hearts I have ever seen!

My Project

At the GYTO National Conference, I will have the opportunity to learn the best tips, tricks, techniques, and best practices to building a successful and engaging classroom from fellow passionate and enthusiastic educators! I will use this knowledge to create dynamic lessons that will challenge and engage my fourth-grade students and facilitate their love for learning!

I know these research-based strategies will impact my students' learning and our learning environment!

My students are hard workers, and I want to make my curriculum as engaging as possible to make the most out of each and every day!

The best part of this conference is that I would get to spend 4 days learning from Hope and Wade King as they and their team share their passion for education and give their tips, best practices and teacher secrets to building a successful and engaging classroom. This conference will allow me to attend sessions by many teachers who are experts in different subjects! I will then be able to take this information back to my kids and enhance their learning experience!
