I am blessed with the opportunity to teach 22 amazing Kindergarten students. If I could describe my students in five words, they would be: loving, energetic, supportive, inquisitive, and unique. The Kindergarten students that I teach come from different backgrounds and socioeconomic statuses, thus they have many different experiences coming into the classroom. Several students come from low-poverty incomes, and they have not had the same experiences as other children in the classroom.
Also, every year I have students who range in ability from well below grade level to well above grade level.
Each day my goal is to push each student to work toward their full potential. I love seeing the eyes of five and six-year-old students light up when they have grasped a new concept! It is my goal to continue to learn new strategies that I can implement in my classroom in order to help meet each of my students' unique learning needs. My goal by attending the Ron Clark Academy is to learn how to bring engaging, rigorous opportunities to the classroom for all of my students.
Upon attending the Ron Clark Academy, I will be eager to implement the strategies learned from the experience into my present and future classrooms. I cannot wait to learn new engaging ways to reach ALL of my students, and to put these to practice in my own Kindergarten classroom.
I will strive to integrate the learned strategies daily in order to increase rigor and student engagement in my Kindergarten classroom.
I will also use the experience to grow myself as a teacher leader, and help other teachers learn how to transform their classrooms into unique learning opportunities for ALL students.
