Professional development

I Learn=My Students Learn

My Students

My classroom is special because I teach a great group of students. They are eager to learn and love to be actively involved in their learning.

Ownership of their learning makes my students soar.

In my classroom students can use many ways to show their learning. Technology is often infused into the lesson to engage all different types of learners.

Since I teach every student in the school, I get the priviledge of seeing them grow physically and mentally. I see them become students who will be future leaders.

My Project

The International Society of Technology Educators Conference will be held in Chicago, Illinois in June. It is a conference packed with learning and networking.

This conference will have over 18,000 participants from around the world for me to connect with.

I will be able to learn from teachers worldwide and bring that knowledge back to my classroom. I also will be able to share with the world what my class has done

The conference has so many sessions it literally is hard to pick one session. You want to go to them all. I know whatever sessions I attend, my students will be able to learn what I learned. It will help my classes be engaging.
