My Students

My students are energetic, excited about school and come to class ready to learn and with lots of questions! They are digital natives and need access to technology in the classroom in order to be competitive in the 21st century.

More than half of our students come from low-income families.

Our families are involved and do their best to provide support and materials to the classroom and teachers, but sometimes it is not enough to take our students' learning to the next level

My Project

I am requesting funds to attend a conference on Thinking Differently: A Crash Course on Creativity & Innovation.

This institute will help you measure the impact of creativity in the classroom and teach you how to effectively design for and implement change through innovation while considering individual learning styles.

This conference will provide me with invaluable information that I will be able to take back with me to improve my practice when school resumes in the fall. My students will benefit because considering individual learning style instruction is an essential classroom practice if all students are to have equal opportunities to learn.

I will be able to create activities that best support the learning of each student in my classroom using the information I learn.

The knowledge that I learn from this conference will allow me to help countless learners increase their knowledge by providing them with instruction suited just for them. Thank you for considering supporting my project.
