My Students

I have been teaching for over 20 years and have spent most of my career in Title I schools. I am excited to take on a new adventure in my career this year by working with our struggling readers in grades K-2. Our school has been working really hard to find the best practices for helping our lowest readers gain success and empower them with the confidence they need to progress in their reading.

Many of our students have difficulty in managing their own emotions and behaviors which has a direct affect on their learning.

We have a strong curriculum program to target on their specific learning goals and give them the tools to become great readers. I want to support that curriculum as well, by giving them the tools to also manage themselves for better focus and attention to their learning.

I am excited to try some new innovative strategies to help students self-regulate before classroom instruction begins so that they can give their full attention to their learning and improve their reading skills and other classroom skills as well.

My Project

I am requesting training in teaching children Yoga to help them to become self-regulators. This training will help to improve student behavior and classroom management with dynamic teaching techniques, empower students to self-regulate before class or test-taking situations with yoga breathing and relaxation and boost students’ health and wellness while meeting National PE standards with fun, educational yoga classes.

By being able to self-regulate, it will enhance the learning environment into a safe and comfortable one where all learners will be able to focus on their reading skills and become more confident in their reading.

Having this focus and ability to self-regulate before they begin an activity, being able to recognize when they are struggling emotionally and are about to lose control of their behavior will help them throughout their school day once they become comfortable with using this technique.
