Help Me Get My Teach On!

I need help funding a trip to the "Get Your Teach On" conference in order to learn new strategies to engage & excite my students in the classroom.

My Students

My students are from many different backgrounds and many of them speak English as their second language. They are excited about fifth grade but lack the motivation to challenge themselves and my goal this year is to change that. This school is considered Title One in an urban part of North Carolina where 100% of our students receive free or reduced lunch. This school's demographic is about 50% Hispanic or ESL and 50% African-American. When asked what need all students have in common, I believe that it is love and support. I know that they will flourish when we can work together to accomplish this engaging, welcoming and safe environment for them to learn and grow.

My Project

This conference is designed to reignite passion for teaching and give research-based strategies on how to engage students in the classroom. Even when required to teach state standards in the public schools, the leaders of this conference promise there are ways to make your students enjoy coming to school each day.

It is SO worth it to see a lesson come to life for a student and to see it "click" for them in the classroom.

I am hoping that this conference helps me create an all-encompassing atmosphere of this lightbulb moment for every student. The biggest challenge that I've faced this year is meeting the needs of each and every child in my room. This Get Your Teach On conference will provide me with practical ways to engage and interest students with the content I am teaching.
