In our classroom, located in a quiet suburban neighborhood in Colorado, everyone is a teacher and everyone is a learner. We have a significant special needs center-based program with the most amazing students and school family!
To work collaboratively, communicate, and engage in critical thinking my students are given choice throughout the day in how they learn and demonstrate their learning.
In our classroom, we are striving to create a creative and collaborative learning space so that all students can continue to achieve their best. This happens in a variety of ways since each of my students has different needs. I want to educate myself so I can bring the latest and research-driven methods to help each of my students grow and become the best they can be!
I need the cost of the conference fee so that I can attend and grow to educate my students and help them reach their full growth and independence.
would love to attend the Courage to Risk conference.
This is a rare opportunity to learn from leading special education experts and bring the best research methods back to my classroom to benefit each one of my students.
"To laugh is to risk appearing the fool.
To weep is to risk appearing sentimental.
To reach out for another is to risk involvement.
To expose feelings is to risk exposing our true self.
To place your ideas, your dreams before the crowd is to risk loss.
To love is to risk not being loved in return.
To live is to risk dying.
To hope is to risk failure.
BUT TO RISK WE MUST because the greatest hazard in life is to risk nothing.
The man, the woman, who risks nothing, does nothing, has nothing, is nothing."
