My Students

Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis said, "There are many little ways to enlarge your child’s world. Love of books is the best of all." My students know my love for reading, and many of my students have that love, as well. My desire is to expose them to as many of the classics as possible.

We are rural, and our community is very small with less than 3,000 residents, and for many of our students, even at the high school level, school is an escape; it is where they receive the encouragement that they do not have at home.

Our school is the only high school in the community. Our community is made up of many families living in poverty and doing their best to try and provide for their children. Much of our community is made up of single parent homes, and these families are not making enough money to put food on the table, much less buy school supplies. Due to this, many of our students lack what many people take for granted. Our school has many dedicated teachers who make the best of what we have!

My Project

I have many different levels of students in my classes. I would like to have a class set of Shakespeare Made Easy for Shakespeare's Othello, as this is something that would help all of them!

Many times, students think they don't like Shakespeare because they don't think they understand the words; with this resource, those students will realize that many of his topics are still very relevant today!

It is a great feeling when any student tells me that he/she hasn't read a book cover to cover since elementary school. It also makes me feel happy when students enjoy what we are reading. Shakespeare Made Easy will help even the struggling readers get the point!
