Ms. Weintraub from Baldwin Park CA is requesting professional development through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Professional development

Headed to ISTE!

I need food and lodging stipends during the ISTE conference so that I can learn how to transform teaching and learning with technology.

My Students

My students are inquisitive, engaging fourth graders. They are curious students who love to ask questions and extend their learning. Our classroom is a warm and welcoming community of learners. These amazing young people bring their cultural backgrounds into our class of learners to create a diverse classroom community.

Our 3rd through 8th graders and their families chose to attend this school to be a part of our wonderful, small school learning environment.

I teach at a public magnet school with less than 400 students in 3rd-8th grades, which provides a unique opportunity for upper elementary and middle school students to share the same campus and school community. As a school of choice instead of a neighborhood zoned school, we have students enrolled from throughout the district's different school zones.

My Project

ISTE stands for the International Society for Technology in Education and it hosts one of the largest educational conferences there is. More than 16,000 educators gather together for four days of transformative learning. As teachers, we are constantly learning, growing, and evolving to be better prepared to educate our students in a rapidly changing world. This professional development project will cover stipends for food and lodging costs.

This conference will allow me to connect with other educators and educational technology companies that can support my teaching in the classroom.

From networking to technology device "playgrounds" to digital tools to subject-based sessions on math, financial literacy, and computer science, I will be able to fill my days at ISTE with hours upon hours of quality professional development and bring back my learning to the classroom.
