My Students

I have been teaching at the same school for 15 years and I am truly honored to work with a very diverse group of students every day. I am always looking for new and exciting ways to teach new content to my busy learners who struggle with academics. This school year I want my students to be more successful in as many opportunities as possible.

I want to attend this professional development to support me in making my lessons become highly engaging and rigorous.

I am hoping to learn some of the trending ways to engage my students from some of the top educators.

My Project

It would be so beneficial to attend this professional development conference in order for me to reach all my students. At this conference, teachers get a chance to learn interactive and highly engaged classroom management and teaching strategies. Some of these strategies include adding music and movement into my lessons and transforming my classroom into a creative work-space in order to grab all my student's attention.

My students are hard working and eager to learn new things.

I know that in order to keep their interest level high I need to be using current trends and research-based instructional practices.

I hear this conference is unlike any other conference that I have attended and will be jam-packed with some of the bet ideas around.
