My Students

The students attend a small title one school in Jefferson County, CO. Each of the students attends our school in the hopes of improving their tomorrow. Our goal is to identify, intervene, and effect positive change in students guiding them to their success.

The high school students work in the middle years program to advance their abilities and improve their algebra skills in themselves and others.

The school is an International Baccalaureate school and the students have opportunities to work at their ability levels no matter what they are.

My Project

I am requesting funds to attend a conference on Google educator certification. This three-day conference will provide me with invaluable information that I will be able to take back with me to improve my practice when school resumes in the fall. My students will benefit because using technology with enhance instruction and is an essential classroom practice if all students are to have opportunities to learn.

This conference will allow me to use technology for instruction in my classroom and to further meet the needs of individual students.

The knowledge that I learn from this conference will allow me to help countless learners increase their knowledge by providing them with instruction suited just for them. Thank you for considering supporting my project.
