My Students

A typical day in my classroom operates with student engagement, active learning and social interaction between table groups, small groups and pairs. My classroom is fun and entertaining, and I genuinely seek to actively engage students through a hands-on approach.

If you were to ask me who my educator mentor and hero is, I would state Ron Clark.

I want to attend a Ron Clark Academy workshop. Not only would this be an opportunity of a lifetime, but it would also be a an honor that will benefit both my current students and my future students. By going to the Ron Clark Academy for training, I will be immersed in lessons about student engagement and school culture, and I will have the opportunity to attend classes and workshops that will teach me to create a teaching environment of change. This experience will allow me to observe other professionals who love teaching and have a unique and creative way of showing it! The Ron Clark Academy Educator Training allows for teachers to grow, learn and implement new and exciting activities to promote student engagement and other creative learning techniques, which inevitably gets students excited for learning!

My Project

This project will make a difference in my life and in my students' lives because I believe in the philosophy of Ron Clark. The direction the academy has taken has set a new standard of change within teaching. This unique opportunity will make a difference in the way I teach, the way I learn, the way I lesson plan, and the way I structure my teaching; therefore, this professional development will cause a great ripple effect in my students' lives by allowing them to learn in a new, creative way!

I need to attend the Ron Clark Academy workshop because the educator training offers professional development in student engagement and rigor of courses.

The hotel option will benefit me so I can stay the weekend in order to attend the Ron Clark Academy.
