My Students

I have a creative, hilarious and energetic group of first graders. My class is about 50% English language learners. My students are motivated and excited to learn. My classroom is extremely diverse. My students come to me from different backgrounds, with varied socioeconomic status, and very different academic ability levels, I also have students with special social and behavioral needs. I have a very wide range of learners but I always strive to meet every student where they are and help them achieve growth no matter where they start. Our school is Title I with 100% of our students qualifying for free and reduced lunch. Although our community is diverse and we face many challenges every day, my ultimate goal is to make sure my classroom is an inclusive, safe space for all of my students.

My Project

In my experience, an amazing professional development conference is the best way to re-energize and recharge for a new school year. There is nothing like walking into a new year overflowing with ideas and excitement for the year to come. At the Get Your Teach On National conference, I would get to watch expert presenters as they share their passion and enthusiasm for education and give their tips, tricks, best practices, and teacher secrets to building a successful and engaging classroom. I would be able to participate in hands-on sessions covering every academic area. The ideas and strategies learned during this four-day conference will not only impact next years students but students for years to come. My wish is to leave feeling empowered, motivated and prepared to create dynamic lessons that will challenge my students and leave them hungry for more.
