Mrs. Oum from Worcester MA is requesting professional development through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Professional development

Math Empowerment

I need to attend this conference to empower my students with the love of learning math.

Hooray! This project is fully funded

My Students

The makeup of my classroom is diverse. My students are eager and enthusiastic about their learning every day. I feel that they still require innovative and fun ways to learn in all of the content areas. Math is one of the subjects that I would like to further empower my students to take risks and enjoy the process of learning and growing. By bringing fun, active, and engaging techniques into the classroom, my students will benefit from it throughout their years of education.

My Project

I very much am looking forward to attending this seminar. I will be able to learn and grow as an educator during the two days that I am there. I have been teaching for 22 years and look forward to going to school every day to teach. I know I make a difference every day. My students will benefit from what I will be bringing back to teach them. The techniques and strategies will be a valuable asset to myself and my students for years to come. I will help empower and enhance their love of learning math so that they can keep the skills forever.
