Mrs. Tolone from Apopka FL is requesting professional development through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Professional development

Help Mrs. Tolone Get to the Ron Clark Academy!

I need funding in order to observe and learn from master teachers at the two-day educator training at the Ron Clark Academy to inspire and engage my students.

My Students

My students are remarkable and diverse! They are full of energy, embrace technology, and love to interact and collaborate. They represent a wide variety of ethnicities, family structures, socio-economic backgrounds, and ability levels.

My students are part of Generation Z, which means they take in information quickly and learn differently than students in the past.

They are innovative problem-solvers who require constant engagement, and keep me on my toes at all times! I am always looking for new ways to inspire and motivate them.

My Project

Many of my colleagues had the opportunity to attend professional development at the Ron Clark Academy in Atlanta this summer. They came back inspired and shared so many of the wonderful strategies and lessons they learned at RCA. All of the teachers who have attended RCA agree that there is nothing like attending this amazing school in person! I would love to be able to travel to Atlanta to experience this myself!

I believe the Ron Clark Academy will help me stay on the cutting edge of high-yield strategies and engagement techniques to provide my students with the best education possible!

The way his educators excite students about education and the possibilities for their future, gives me hope that I can do same.

My hope is that after visiting RCA, my students will be fully engaged in their learning and motivated to invest in their education. This project will help cover the cost of registration for the 2-day training at the Ron Clark Academy.
