Ms. Stoops from Evansville IN is requesting professional development through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.

Professional development

Planned Success

I need to improve my organizational skills with a teacher lesson planner to list instructional activities and keep classroom records. I need notebooks to take notes during school meetings and professional development workshops.

My Students

For the past 19 years, I have been a Special Education teacher. In addition to classroom teaching, I also coach the JV and Varsity Volleyball teams. I love teaching and enjoy infusing my love of art and creativity into my classroom every day. I love developing relationships and building a community of learners.

One of my many goals is to provide students brain-focused strategies for learning and living.

I hope to accomplish this by creating productive, harmonious centers of successful learning inside my classroom, where all students thrive because they recognize themselves as: capable and creative learners, self-aware human beings, compassionate and responsible citizens.

My Project

I would like to model how effective organization and planning is essential for success. These wonderful planners and notebooks have been recognized as the best for helping teachers plan, keeping conference notes and class lists, scheduling, note taking, and so much more in one perfect location!

As much as I love my online calendar, I am needing a portable paper calendar and notebook to keep me better organized and prepared.

I have papers, notes, and notebooks all over the place and I'm needing one central location for everything. I am recognizing my professional development needs right now are a concise personal organizational system. When I feel organized, my classroom instruction will also get a boost.
