My Students

As a teacher, I am working to build students who are prepared for the jobs of the future. This training will provide me with new and creative ways to reach my students and to get them excited about learning. It will also provide me with tips that I can use with teachers to spread this same excitement all across my campus.

My students are bright, energetic, and fun elementary students at a school in the beautiful Sunshine State of Florida.

We are a Title I School, which means that a majority of the students at my school are students who receive free and/or reduced-price lunch. Despite this label, my students are always eager to learn, and they work hard to grasp concepts. My kids are also champions. In my class, a champion is one who comes to school on time, works hard, and gives their best effort each and every day. They are respectful and friendly and treat each other as a family!

My Project

These books will help my staff to engage in serious PD about changing the culture and climate of a school. We are currently working to improve our school climate and to use data to make better-informed decisions for our students. The Get Better Faster and Driven by Data will help provide us with a framework to make this happen. Great Readers, Great Habits, Teach Like a Champion, The Wildcard, and the Ron Clark books will help us to make a culture shift.

Our students will experience engagement like never before.

They will have teachers who are using out of this world ideas to provide them with meaningful experiences and help them learn. I cannot wait to see this change occur, and you all are a part of making it happen!
