My Students

I have had the pleasure of teaching 3rd grade for the past two years and I have enjoyed every minute! have a classroom full of wonderful, amazing third grade students. My students may come from a variety of backgrounds, but despite their differences they always try their hardest.

I want to be able to provide the best educational experience possible for my students.

I will do anything I can to make my lessons more engaging and interesting for my students.

My Project

What I want to do most for the students in my classroom is make learning fun. Students learn best through hands on experiences and engaging lessons. I feel that this opportunity would provide me with the tools and skills necessary to be able to do that for my students.

The Ron Clark Academy is a great place to be able to go and learn how to make lessons more engaging and hands on for my students.

My hope is that through attending this conference I will be able to make many of my lessons come to life for my students and they will be able to learn so much more.
