My students are inquisitive, engaging fourth graders. They are curious students who love to ask questions and extend their learning. Our classroom is a warm and welcoming community of learners. These amazing young people bring their cultural backgrounds into our class of learners to create a diverse classroom community.
Our 3rd through 8th graders and their families chose to attend this school to be a part of our wonderful, small school learning environment.
I teach at a public magnet school with less than 400 students in 3rd-8th grades, which provides a unique opportunity for upper elementary and middle school students to share the same campus and school community. As a school of choice instead of a neighborhood zoned school, we have students enrolled from throughout the district's different school zones.
This project will cover the registration cost for the Scholastic Reading Summit, which is happening in Universal City, CA (Los Angeles area) on July 25, 2019. The Reading Summit is an incredible event hosted by Scholastic with nationally known educators and speakers sharing reading strategies in two professional development workshops in addition to featured speakers to begin and end the day. Examples of workshops include Revving Up Read-Alouds and Inspiring Kids in Turbulent Times: Empowering Children Through Stories. The registration includes these sessions, breakfast and lunch, parking fees, and a selection of five books.
The Reading Summit will reinvigorate my love of reading and provide me an opportunity to learn from other educators as I look forward to teaching next year.
I have attended this event before, and it is full of teachers who love teaching and love reading and are thrilled to be at a professional development event during their summer vacation. I hope to have the chance to attend again this summer and bring back
