I need to go to the Ron Clark Academy in order to observe master educators teach classes and take part in professional development workshops to improve literacy, student engagement, and school culture!
My group of fourth graders is extremely bright, witty, and ready to explore each and every day! We live in a very rural community surrounded by woods and farmland, but we would not change it for anything.
Even at 100% free or reduced-price lunch rates, we have been ranked first in our conference for student achievement.
We are proud of where we live and how we have grown to overcome many challenges. Low-income does not equal low expectations for our students!
Traveling to Ron Clark Academy will help rejuvenate my love for teaching and help me bring back fresh ideas for myself as well as my coworkers! At the Ron Clark Academy I would be able to observe master educators teach classes, take part in professional development workshops, and experience school culture, rigor, and student engagement that can be applied to any grade level. I would love to be a part of the interactive, hands-on professional development offered at the Ron Clark Academy.
School culture, student engagement, inclusive teaching, peer-to-peer learning, and varied, fresh teaching strategies are truly the things that matter most to me!
Improving school culture is an important goal for my school and I am excited to help bring back new fresh ideas. When students are engaged in the learning process, they are truly understanding importance of the subject. I am always striving to be the best teacher I can be and I feel the Ron Clark Academy can help me grow as an educator!
