I love teaching! I am truly happy and fortunate to work with the unique and diverse group of students. The achievements of my students inspire me and I am happy to continue to improve myself as a teacher for them. This project will allow me to go to the Get Your Teach On Conference in Orlando.
My students are first and third graders who need a lot of interaction with hands on materials.
A typical day in my classroom is extremely interactive and engaging. My students are always learning through moving and working together in an exciting and collaborative environment. Going to a regional conference will allow me the opportunity to learn from other teachers and facilitators who have found effective strategies that work in their classroom. In my state, there are not a lot of specific grade level professional development opportunities.
It has been a dream of mine, as an educator, to attend the Get Your Teach On Conference. This conference will allow me to grow professionally in many ways. First, this conference offers a wide variety of breakout sessions from math to literacy. There are also endless new ways to incorporate hands on learning opportunities in the classroom. This conference will present researched based strategies that can be incorporated in K-5 classrooms to reach all learners. Educators will be able to share endless ideas of how to better reach students through interactive mini sessions and hands on learning opportunities during the two days. I will be able to walk away from the conference with new strategies to share with my school and colleagues.
This conference will allow me to connect with teachers across the country to learn best practices, strategies, and techniques for a successful classroom.
Sessions include lessons on reading, writing, science, STEM, social studies, and math. The conference has a strong focus on math and math manipulatives. This will help me learn new ways to present difficult concepts. As a teacher, I am a lifelong learner who is eager for any opportunity to meet other educators and learn from them.
