I need an important professional development to help me help ALL of my first graders learn to read better with a Reading Recovery certification.
The students in my classroom are diverse in ethnicity, economics, and academics. We are a Title I, dual-language (Spanish and Vietnamese) school in a busy Seattle neighborhood. My students speak a variety of languages including Spanish, Vietnamese, Cambodian, Somali, among others. However, one common denominator is that they all work hard and want more. They want more knowledge, they love to learn! In order to do that, they need materials that can help them be successful and WANT to continue to be lifelong learners.
I love teaching first grade! I love meeting and getting to know each of my amazing students and I love the challenges that are presented to me throughout the year, both instructionally and emotionally. I have always been daunted by the immense task of teaching struggling readers. this is such a huge job. There is just so much that goes into learning to read, it can be overwhelming. Specifically, for students with reading disabilities or that particularly struggle with letters and sounds, this can be quite the task. I want to do the best I can for ALL of my first graders. This is why I am in my training year for Reading Recovery, a structured professional development that pinpoints the lowest and most struggling readers in first grade; finds their strengths and builds off of them in a systematic way.
I am passionate about improving my own instruction and teaching skills in order to enable ALL of my students to be all that they can be and so much more!
This is an intensive training for educators and is considered a graduate certificate. Currently, I am in the process of obtaining a Masters of Education degree in Reading Intervention so I am asking for support with this project. This program year has two college terms, Fall 2019, which I have paid out of pocket, and Spring 2020. I have already purchased the course texts and will be funding the fees for the Teacher Leader who will be supporting me via satellite, email, phone, and video conferences. The Reading Recovery Teacher Leader will also be visiting my classroom throughout the school year from California to our site in Seattle. My students, school administration, and myself appreciate any support!
