Setting the Stage to Engage! Get Your Teach on Conference

I need to feel empowered and motivated to create dynamic lessons that will challenge my students and leave them hungry for more!

My Students

My classroom is filled with 20 first graders who are eager to learn. Our school is a Title I school with 69% being from low-income households. They come from various backgrounds and each learn in their own individual ways.

I want to be able to engage each one of them so that the lessons I teach will be meaningful to them.

They love to be involved and hands-on when doing activities.

I would love to go to this conference so that I can come back and make my classroom a "magical" place to learn for these students!

My Project

By attending Get Your Teach On, I will learn strategies to engage and to set the stage for learning. I want to step up my teaching and take student engagement to the next level.

With this, my students will WANT to be at school, rather than think they HAVE to be at school.

I will learn teaching tips, strategies, and ideas from fellow teachers that will help me reach this goal. I will leave this conference feeling motivated and ready to engage my students in the classroom! I will transform my classroom into a place that the students want to come to and learn in. The students will experience teaching like never before. We will use more hands-on activities and be up and moving and engaging in our lessons. Being with other teachers will also help me grow and be motivated as well.
