My Students

My third-grade class is an awesome place for reading, writing, exploring and learning. Students spend this year learning the foundation of reading to learn new information and applying it to all subjects. My students are constantly learning through different learning techniques. My students tend to learn more through movement and music.

I would love to attend a professional development to bring more learning strategies to these kids to help them be successful throughout their schooling and life in general!

My Project

I am requesting funds to attend the Get Your Teach On in Orlando, FL to help give my partner teacher and myself new ideas to make teaching fun!

Get Your Teach On is well-known for sharing many new innovated teaching styles and has opened their doors for teaching and training to provide ways to learn without using boring worksheets.

My goal is to teach in ways that promote creativity, innovation, wonder, joy, and a passion for learning. The Get Your Teach On conference will help us achieve these goals and allow us to come back to our school and inspire academic excellence, leadership, collaboration, and a world-class education for our students.
