My Students

My 8th grade students are a diverse group from many different backgrounds and cultures. We are working on changing the world, one social issue at a time!

These students are extremely intelligent and motivated in school and in their commitment to the community.

They are artists, writers, readers, scientists, mathematicians, and athletes. Since this is our 2nd year together, I have gotten to know them better and am inspired by this group of future leaders. I know the work we do this year will help them succeed in high school and beyond.

My Project

My students have chosen two current topics from the news to tackle for our service-learning project this year. In my 3rd period class, we are studying issues related to immigration in America, like people seeking asylum, deportation of immigrant parents, and separating children from families at the border. In my 4th period class, we are studying women's rights and sexual assault due to the emergence of the #metoo movement other issues in the news.

After reading these books, I hope my students have a better understanding of what it might be like to experience these issues personally.

Then, we will have speakers come to the classroom from various non-profit organizations around the city. Finally, we will plan some type of service to do to help raise awareness in our community about these issues.
