My Students

We are a Title I school, with 90% of our students on free or reduced-price meal plans. We have many English Language Learner (ELL) students at our school. Over half of my students are ELL students. Our students come from working families and families who speak other languages at home. Some parents are not able to communicate in English with us, but we do have Spanish-speaking translators on site.

Our staff is very caring and committed to providing a nurturing, fun, and engaging classroom for all our students.

We want students to know that we will be there for them and give them as much as we possibly can. One great thing about our school is that we have one-to-one devices, iPads or Chromebook computers. For many students, this is the first time they have been able to use and engage with today's technology.

My Project

I am requesting funds for flight and meal reimbursement to attend a four-day conference at the ISTE Conference. I have a passion for being an educator and I am always interested in new, innovating teaching methods that will give my students the ability to succeed.

ISTE features many experienced educators who would teach me new and inventive ways to help my students grow in the world of technology.

This conference would be unlike any other as I know I have so much to learn and gain from these educators. These sessions will cover topics on math, financial literacy, and computer science and I will be able to fill my days at ISTE with many hours of quality professional development and bring back my learning to the classroom. I am excited to keep learning and growing for years to come!
