My Students

My amazing students are talkative, creative, and bursting with energy. They love to write, take videos and pictures, make playlists, and connect to the outside world through their devices. They also are thinkers. They write, take notes, are detectives, and analyze the old fashion way. They like to get out of their desks to do their learning.

My school loves to see our students shine through their projects and activities.

We are part rural/part suburban community, located in western Metro Atlanta.

My Project

My students crave books that grab their attention and make them think about a world larger than themselves. The novels I have requested can help meet their needs. As part of our curriculum, we read books that make them question their world and help them grow into concern and engaged adults. We read Night, Othello, and Persepolis in order to explore prejudice, humanity, the importance of rights, and what it means to be human. By adding different choice texts, literature circles would get to explore themes in a modern setting. The Hate You Give and Hidden Figures can help accomplish this goal.

By examining other people's stories of struggle and success, students can make connections to the past, present, and a possible future.

Their ability to critically think and examine the events of this book will allow them to become stronger readers, engaged citizens, and better writers.
