My mom was a teacher, my grandma was a teacher, it was only natural that I followed in the footsteps that they had laid in front of me. In that, I became a teacher! My first year of being an "actual teacher" was challenging, yet rewarding. As my teaching career has continued, I am beginning to find out that I myself am con- tinually learning something new every day that can help me better the learning process of these students. One of the ways I am learn- ing is through receiving my Master's Degree. In that, I am incredibly thankful to be em- ployed by a school that encour- ages their teachers to work towards their Master's Degree. The support that is offered at Park River Area Schools means so much. As I am getting further and further into graduate school, I have now been asked to choose what I would like to do my "Action Research Project" on. The Action Research Project is the final project due before re- ceiving the Master's Degree. In that, I am researching "The Ef- fects of Game-Based Learning in Vocabulary Instruction". What that means is teaching my students vocabulary in a tradi- tional way first followed by teaching it in a game-based learning environment to see which method of teaching in- creases engagement and achievement in my students. I believe as an educator it is to the upmost importance to ac- knowledge that students learn in a variety of ways. In that, try- ing new approaches and build- ing relationships with students will hopefully help meet the needs of all learners. I am in- credibly excited to see if using game-based learning in my vo- cabulary instruction will in- crease the learning process in the content area of vocabulary.
