My Students

I am a 3rd-grade dual-language teacher and I LOVE this grade level! I have taught 4th and 1st but this age and grade have stolen my heart. They are so eager to learn and can do so much for themselves. I had the privilege of being their 1st-grade dual-language teacher and now I almost want to move up to 4th grade with them!

Having fun while learning is what I want my passion to be with regards to learning.

Happy teacher, happy students, right?!

Having the students (and myself) engaged has proven to be challenging in my fourth year of teaching. I am always seeking out fun and exciting professional developments to get me fired up!

My Project

I am requesting the opportunity to attend a professional development teaching conference that focuses on a wide range of topics. From reading strategies to technology, math and even Social Studies (which seems to get lost in the shuffle of a school day) this conference has everything! I am confident that the knowledge learned in these breakout sessions will help me further engage my students in better lesson prepared by me. The knowledge that I attain here will benefit my students for many years and also the rest of my third-grade team. I plan on collaborating with them and sharing what I learned.

I am excited to be teaching our future and want to give them every possible opportunity to learn and grow academically.

This conference not only offers exciting lesson ideas but also manipulatives that we can bring back into our class! Students love hands-on activities and I feel that is what I am lacking.

Advancements in technology will only continue and companies looking for well-rounded people to join their team are still around, so it is my duty to do everything I can to teach these young brilliant minds at an early age.
