I am privileged to teach about fifty outstanding students math and science. My students are very inquisitive, creative, and extremely clever. We are a Title I school where over 60% of the population receives free or reduced lunch. Even though my school is very culturally diverse, we are extremely competitive and we strive for excellence daily.
Willing, ready, and always trying to stand out among the rest, we need more knowledge with financial literacy in our classroom.
We are shining stars and would love to shine with or above the rest.
I would like to attend the International Society for Technology in Education Conference (ISTE) in Philadelphia at the end of June, 2019. This conference offers many breakout sessions and keynote speakers. With this professional development opportunity, I will be given the opportunity to teach using the latest technology and be innovative while teaching students to understand financial literacy. At the conference, I will find out about great apps, websites, and other resources to get the students a great financial foundation.
I am a lifelong learner and this conference can really spice up this seasoned teacher while teaching financial literacy.
The conference will offer me hands-on experience with the latest technology from many of the top vendors such as Google and Apple. ISTE will allow me an opportunity to network with other teachers while obtaining new strategies and instructional ideas in financial literacy.
This would be a great opportunity for me and my students. I really enjoy learning new things and implementing them in my classroom.
