My Students

My 9th grade language arts students come from low-income, minority households with 78% of them receiving free or reduced lunches and with almost 30% of them not graduating from high school.

They are so much more than their current circumstances!

Even though they may not have the luxury of a computer at home, parents who are not working all the time to make ends meet, or even food in their pantry, they want to make a positive impact on the world. They aspire to become pilots, nurses, engineers, educators, contractors, and business owners.

My Project

I want my students to experience the joy of reading a good book that they won't want to put down. At the beginning of the school year, I ask my students what their favorite book is, and most say that they do not have one!

For students to become engaged in reading, they need high-interest books to choose from.

These bestsellers will combine fun and learning. Research indicates that time spent reading is related to academic achievement which is why I emphasize independent reading in my classroom by allocating 60 minutes a week for students to read a book of their choice.

"If you don't like to read, you haven't found the right book."
