My Students

“In learning you will teach, and in teaching you will learn.” ― Phil Collins Teachers are learners too! It is my goal to reach every unique student that I have in my classroom.

I currently teach Third Grade in a Title One School in Metro-Atlanta.

This is my third year teaching Third Grade and I absolutely love it. I am always looking for new teaching strategies and ideas that I can bring into the classroom. Every student and class is unique, so I need to engage myself in professional development so I can reach all of my learners. I am constantly looking for conferences and training that can help make me a better educator for my students.

My Project

By attending the Ron Clark Academy summer conference, I hope to learn new teaching strategies and tools that will help my students become even more engaged in learning. I want to be able to use what I learn to motivate my students to become lifelong learners. I want to attend the Ron Clark Academy summer conference so I can experience what has worked and bring it into my own classroom. I will also be able to acquire new teaching strategies and tools that I can bring into my classroom and share with my co-workers. This will help me reach all of my unique learners.

I need to attend the Ron Clark Academy Educators' Summer Conference to acquire new teaching strategies and tools so I can better serve all of my unique students.

By attending this conference, I will become a better educator.
