Although I haven't been a teacher for long, my students have truly inspired me. My students have helped me grow as a person teaching me to be more and more compassionate, adaptable, and patient. I love helping students understand math and helping that one student who hates math and has never done well in it master the subject is the most satisfying feeling ever.
As a bi-lingual teacher, reaching my Spanish speaking students is my favorite part of my job.
I remember what it was like growing up in an English speaking community and not knowing what was going on around me. My goal is to help these students know they are not alone in their struggles!
I was privileged enough to get a glimpse of Ron Clark in a session of professional development and ever since that day I've been craving more! He shared with us his story and inspired me to learn more. Since then, I've bought his book, The Essential 55, and have watched The Ron Clark Story. By attending the Ron Clark Academy, I will be inspired to implement new strategies in my classroom that will help motivate and challenge my students.
I would love the opportunity to go to RCA to learn how to create a class culture that promotes success, how to encourage student participation, and how to make learning more engaging!
