My Students

I teach an amazing group of students in Southern Appalachia. My students love using hands-on activities to learn. Despite challenges in some of their home lives, these students come to class every day ready to learn and do their best. I try my best to find new ways to help keep them engaged in learning and moving forward.

One hundred percent of the students at our school receive free breakfast and lunch.

Many of our students are given a backpack of food for each weekend or break from school. My students are hard workers and are willing to do what it takes to be successful one day.

My Project

The Family Engagement Innovators Program is designed for teachers in grades 3 to 8, with a particular focus on Math, ELA, and Science teachers. In this one-of-a-kind professional development opportunity, teachers learn how to incorporate groundbreaking strategies for engaging families in learning that integrate seamlessly into instructional plans.

Participating teachers will learn how to leverage family engagement to drive student achievement.

Teachers will become adept at using PowerMyLearning's Family Playlists™ an easy-to-use program that puts students in the teacher’s seat at home and drives content mastery and social emotional learning skills. The Family Playlists program is mobile-friendly and multi-lingual; it was recently featured in the New York Times and was named a 2018 CODiE Finalist.

The program includes three hands-on online professional development sessions plus access to Family Playlists via a free yearlong subscription to PowerMyLearning Connect: School Edition for themselves and up to 4 other teachers at their school. Teachers who attend the professional development sessions will receive an official Certificate of Completion. For teachers who complete fundraising by 12/31, the program will start in January.

Family Playlists are interactive homework assignments through which students practice a set of learning activities in class, and then they teach what they learned to a family member (usually a parent) at home. The family member then provides feedback to the teacher about the experience like how well the child understood or explained the lesson
