My Students

In my third-grade classroom, every student is remarkable and valued in their own and unique way. By teaching third grade in the same Title I school over the last year, I've taken pride in being a part of an exceptional school community where students, families, and teachers work together to give all kids a strong social-emotional and academic support. We all have the same goal in mind: we don't want to construct scholars who memorize and repeat back what they learn. Instead, we want to help creative, insightful, passionate young learners find their way. To me, every child is capable of navigating their own future, with our guidance. I believe I need to show my scholars where to look, but allow them to see what they see in their own unique way. My hope is to help every one of my young students find their path with a guiding hand.

My Project

I'm requesting funding for an engaging and hands-on teacher conference, where I will learn effective strategies and skills to take back to my scholars.

At the Teach Your Heart Out conference, I will be learning from exceptional educators about how to engage my diverse students with new, effective, research-based lessons.

I will learn from dedicated educators about how to turn learning into an experience, how to engage through music, and how to build a strong classroom community. Not only will I learn from the educators presenting, but I will have the opportunity to connect with other educators from all over the country. I can’t wait to take everything I will learn like incorporating new strategies, and how to make my classroom a hands-on learning environment.
