My Students

My students range from 12-14 years old. As most middle students being asked to sit still and learn for 8+ hours a day, they have a need for engagement. This training would help me find strategies to further engage my students in learning. My students come from all different types of backgrounds. ELA can be a difficult subject for students to be engaged with if they don’t feel strong in that content area. My students need a teacher that can make a tough subject easier and I strive to be that teacher for them every day.

My Project

Ron Clark is a world renowned educator. I would love to be able to visit his school and learn strategies from him for teaching ELA. I have already started implementing some of his strategies in my classroom and I would eventually like to influence a revolution throughout my school. Schoolwide initiatives are my ultimate goals to cause waves in education. The school I teach in has the capacity to implement amazing initiatives. This training can help inspire ideas that would completely revolutionize how we teach students. Although I am starting small, just in my classroom, I would like to use this training to help other teachers. RCA focuses on rigor with high student engagement through movement, dance, song and leadership. I would love for my school to implement these same strategies.
