My Students

"Mistakes are proof that you are trying." -Anonymous

My classroom is the room where dreams come true and I will not let the lack of supplies or resources stand in the way of my students' dreams.

Ninety-eight percent of the students who grace my classroom door live in government assisted housing and receive free lunch. My students get used to hearing they are destined to become another statistic. When they enter my classroom, they are welcomed to a world of creativity and innovation. They walk into a land where dreams come true.

My students need supplies to be successful. My school's mission is to educate and prepare each of our diverse scholars to excel in a changing global society. It is recognized that the success of the students attending my school is directly correlated to the effectiveness of instruction and the quality of the learning environment. By incorporating a variety of hands-on learning and manipulatives, my students will see they can be anything they dream of being.

My Project

I need to attend the GYTO Conference to learn effective, evidence-based instructional approaches for teaching students outside the box. The Get Your Teach On staff are well-known innovators who have a record of successful instructional interactions with students and teaching in innovative ways. Receiving training in implementing their lesson approach will provide my students with real experiences and allow me to deliver the teaching strategies to anyone in need at our school. I will receive lesson materials and ideas to help me "SET THE STAGE TO ENGAGE". My students will benefit as they receive systematic, explicit, rigorous instruction in conjunction with activities that promote literacy skill development and thinking outside the box. I believe that I can become a provider of valuable instruction that can bridge gaps and help overcome barriers by teaching outside the box. I look forward to having this valuable tool of training available to share with all the members of our school.

The 21st Century continues to declare itself as an age of complexity and excitement as more and more teachers begin to step outside the box.

Advancements in technology and other fields demand participants who are confident readers and who are able to navigate whatever routes are placed before them that require thinking outside the box. The need for literacy and STEAM continues to increase. My project will make a difference by encouraging my students to believe in themselves as readers, mathematicians, engineers, leaders, and innovators.
