Responsive Classroom Teachers Conference or Bust!

This project will cover the registration fee for the Responsive Classroom teachers conference so I can learn new strategies and see them in action to improve my classroom management skills.

My Students

My students attend a Title I school right outside of Washington D.C. We are a diverse community of over 600 students. Our demographics include: 39% Hispanic, 36% African American, 19%, Caucasian, 8% Asian and 1% Native American.

Over half of our students are on free or reduced-price lunch, with only 37% of our families' population having a bachelors or associate degree.

The students I teach are kindergarten to 4th grade English language learners. Can you imagine trying to navigate school for the first time while learning a new language?

Many of the students at my school don't have stable home lives. Many come to school hungry, tired, and carrying the weight of problems at home. Despite the challenges, they come to school eager to learn and be the best version of themselves.

My Project

Before students can succeed academically, they need appropriate social skills. They need to learn how to communicate effectively, how to treat others with respect and kindness, how to take risks, and how to strive for excellence no matter what the culture tells them they can or cannot achieve.

This project will cover the registration fee for the Responsive Classroom teachers conference.

This training will help me create a learning environment that is safe, challenging, and JOYFUL! I will improve my craft through inspiring speakers, interactive panels, and engaging sessions on a wide variety of topics, including strategies for challenging behavior and preventing bullying. I'll gain new skills and strategies to implement and share with my colleagues.

I want to receive this training to become the most effective classroom manager, mentor, and teacher. This training will help make a community of learners that are armed with the skills to be the the best versions of themselves and thrive--both in school and beyond.
