My Students

On to year four of teaching! I have learned so much over the past three years, and I cannot wait for another successful school year. This year, I will be teaching tenth and eleventh English Language Arts with scholars that are eager to learn. I want to try and make my class as engaging and energetic as I can to make sure my scholars thrive.

Despite how excited my students may be about their education, many of them come to school with little to none of the necessary school supplies needed to be successful.

I work in a Title I school where my students qualify for the free or reduced-price lunch program. Even though my students may deal with terrifying real-life circumstances, they still come to school ready to work and ready to be challenged to the next level. My scholars never cease to amaze me with their wit, charm, and amazing ideas!

My Project

We will be reading the novel, "All Eyes Were Watching God" by Zora Neale Hurston next semester. However, we only have 22 copies in our school library. We need an extra 20 copies to make sure all students have a copy to read during class time.

Some of the themes we will be studying with this novel include: race, gender, freedom and confinement, fate and free will, and compassion and forgiveness.

Even though this classic was written in 1937, the conflicts in the novel can still be comparable to situations in our present times.

Additionally, this novel allows me to use readings and poetry from the Harlem Renaissance. This will teach students a bit about history and again allow them to compare to modern times.

I believe my students will enjoy reading this book, and they will create excellent class discussions. Thank you for supporting us!
