Ms. Dawson from Lancaster CA is requesting professional development through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Professional development

Professional Development

I need funding for a professional development course, which will help me be a better teacher to my students this school year. I will learn valuable techniques that will be useful to implement.

Hooray! This project is fully funded

My Students

My classes are 7th and 8th grade English learners, and general education English.

My classroom is enriched in diversity, as I have students from all different cultures and religions.

They are in junior high, a time where they must be engaged all class period. I love learning more about what I can do in the classroom to promote engagement. I must also meet the needs of my learners, by presenting the learning in ways that meet their own personal styles of learning. For my English Learners, I hope to learn more strategies specific to their cultural differences and needs. I want to create an inclusive environment in my classroom.

My Project

I will be learning new techniques that will focus on organizational concepts. As a new teacher, it is difficult to assign group tasks, with classroom management and organization still being areas of growth. I am hoping this course will allow me to better implement collaboration projects in my classroom.

I will be able to provide individual and group projects supporting critical thinking and creative interaction, and learn how to teach in a cohesive way.

My participation in this course will benefit my students' learning this school year. Being a new teacher, this course will give me support as I create projects for my students to collaborative, in a smooth way.
