My Students

I work with talented and gifted students who will be tomorrow's leaders. They are a diverse and inquisitive group who are engaged in the world, strive for excellence in school, respect each other's ideas, and contribute to the community.

Every day I work with my students, I get to experience the energy and compassion that they put forth.

What drives my students most is when they can make connections between what we read in class and the world around us.

My Project

A rich classroom library promotes greater amounts of reading, increased reading frequency and more diverse reading experiences among students.

Classroom libraries serve a vital role in developing literacy.

Because I believe that easy access to engaging books is vital to developing life-long readers, I worked to develop my classroom library last school year. So far I have funded my classroom library myself, and have roughly 250 different titles, all available for my students to check out. I've mainly pieced together my library by visiting my local Goodwill used bookstore. While this has served as a valuable resource to put together an engaging collection of titles for my students, it is severely limited in terms of perspectives and genres.

The titles I have in this project focus on a variety of social justice issues from the teenage perspective. They are gripping and relevant--and will provide great supplemental reading to the civil rights unit we will be starting this month.

Please help me give the gift of quality literature to my students for this year and the future!
