My Students

My students are a wonderful and challenging blend of learners. Many are English Language Learners. Two are autistc. One is homeless. Several are upper middle class but the bulk of my students qualify for free and reduced lunch. Their academic skill levels run the range of far below grade level to far above.

The challenge I bring to school with me each morning, and think about long after the dismissal bell rings, is how to best meet their individual needs and maximize their potential.

My Project

I would like to attend the National Educational Convention sponsored by CUE.

WHAT IS CUE?

"CUE is a 501c3 nonprofit community of connected educators focused on improving education for all learners in California and Nevada. We gather to learn and share at local, regional, and statewide education conferences as well as inside online communities. By participating in CUE events, educators enhance their skills and extend their professional network."

Over 450 Sessions lead by CUE members and highly skilled educators from California, Nevada and beyond. Of the many sessions I am interested in attending, the following stand out as excellent examples of how the learning at CUE will be used directly in my classroom to help my mainstream and special needs kids.

These sessions include "Expressions of a 21st Century Learner with Spanish and Computer Science, Music, Science, and Found Objects: an Introduction to The Hillbrook Sound Project, Must Have Technology Tools to Differentiate Instruction, Cultural Responsive Teaching and Technology, and "From Digital Divide to Meaningful Connections: Exploring ways digital citizenship can bridge."

There are over 400 additional workshops through the course of the conference, many of which I am very excited to learn from.
