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

Professional development

Help the Teacher Learn and Grow

I need support in MY education and knowledge, so that I can be able to provide the best learning environment for the students I have now and for the ones to come.

My Students

My class is filled with 18 unique students who are beaming with potential, knowledge, and a desire to succeed. They are always excited and wanting to learn. Every morning, I greet them with a "Good Morning!", in which they respond, "Good Morning, Mrs. Owens!" From the moment they enter my classroom, I want to give them my all.

These young leaders are ready to grow their minds and take on the world - and I want to help them!

I watch my students work hard every day, which stops to make me reflect and think - how can I give them more? What can I do to increase their academic growth as well as mature into independent people? I understand that I am in need of learning and knowledge too.

My Project

After teaching for three years now, I have already seen myself improve and grow tremendously. However, I still feel like a new teacher! I have so much more to learn, especially while trying to keep up, as the style of education is rapidly evolving.

The best teachers are the ones who are continuously learning!

The Teach Your Heart Out conference has taken place across the nation - and it is finally coming close to my home. I am excited to learn from other experienced educators, collaborate with fellow teachers who are also inspired, and take away new methods and strategies to help create an engaging, fun, and inspiring environment for my students!
