My Students

Every day, my students arrive at school with hope for their futures. Our school is a Title I school, which means we have a high percentage of students living in poverty. While poverty brings many hardships, it doesn't taint our attitudes and outlook at Stevens Park Elementary. Early each morning, you'll hear four hundred plus voices call out our "Bulldog Beliefs" with a rousing howl at the end! Stevens Park Elementary is the happiest school I've ever had the fortune to enter.

While many of their parents are working multiple jobs to provide for their families my students frequently care for their younger siblings and cousins.

Despite all the challenges they face, my students are dedicated readers and learners.

My Project

My students love graphic novels. Our school library has a waiting list for the most popular graphic novels and my classroom library rarely has a graphic novel left on the shelf. Far from the Archie Comics I grew up reading, today's graphic novels have depth and nuance that could be found in critically-acclaimed films.

When reading a graphic novel, my students become passionate critics, discussing and diving into the plot and conflict present on the storyboarded pages.

Classics, such as Nancy Drew and The Hardy Boys, have been remade as graphics and are still as relevant as they were when first published.

The inexpensive bookcases I purchased in August have seen so much use we now need new ones! The study bookcase I'm requesting will keep our new books tidy and off the floor.
