My Students

My school is a large Title I school where eighty percent of the students live below the poverty line. My students are racially, academically, and economically diverse. Many of them face situations that no child should ever face, like being temporarily homeless. Yet, they are also hardworking, enthusiastic young people full of potential and possibilities. They have lots of life and energy.

They love to learn, especially in new and exciting ways, and they recognize that they are part of a larger, generous community.

Please consider helping me to make this their best year ever!

My Project

Every students loves reading when presented in a unique and utterly engaging way. That's why this year I would like to host a "Get Your Neon Literacy On" class. Imagine the surprise of my students when they walk into a classroom that is decked out with black lights, glow in the dark tape and lots of glow items like bracelets and necklaces. They will LOVE it!

If an escape room met a glow in the dark party and had a child, this would be it!

My students will work with a partner to comb the room discovering stories that span the curriculum. These stories will be on black privacy boards around the room. After reading the stories they will have to answer questions and present their answers to me. If their answers are correct, they will receive or be given a clue to find a glow in the dark item that they can wear. As the activity continues, my students will begin to glow more and more. I can only imagine their excitement as their reading and comprehension is rewarded with an ever increasing glow party. Will you help us get our neon, literacy glow on?
