My Students

My students are looking for and creating opportunities in a small town. My LA IV and AP Literature students study world literature and nonfiction.

Our high school is in a close-knit, semi-rural community in Missouri where many of our 800 students have known each other since kindergarten.

Many students play multiple sports, work, care for younger or older family members, or help on family farms, raising crops and livestock. They are hardworking, dedicated students who care about building the best future for their community.

My Project

Our project is a small one to add an additional title for book clubs in each of my classes - one title for AP Literature, one title for English IV.

My students enjoy having the guided choice options in what they read, and DonorsChoose.org donors make it possible to add options!

For English IV, our memoir book clubs allow our seniors to finish their high school careers with stories that inspire and give hope. The titles we choose help the students understand that, no matter what their plans (or lack of them, or what choices or mistakes they make, the have options and can make a difference.

In AP Literature, we choose titles that help students have more exposure to modern classics in a variety of voices from many races, ages, genders and countries. Thank you for your support!
