My Students

My students are hardworking, young adults who are willing to take on an academic challenge by pursuing an AP class. My students are overwhelmingly sophomores, meaning that they take a college level course, with college level expectations at the young age of 15 years old.

They work incredibly hard at improving their reading, writing, and critical thinking skills.

For many students, this is their first AP class or accelerated course. I want students to leave my class with a love of history, but more importantly, the ability to critically analyze sources and make informed decisions. My course stresses critical thinking and writing and while it is challenging for many students, in they end they feel a sense of accomplishment for completing the course and a majority of them will also earn scores high enough to qualify them for college credit on the AP test. These students are driven, innovative and hardworking. They are our future leaders and the future is in good hands.

My Project

Scholastic Art is a magazine that will help my students find a deeper appreciation for art history while including fun artistic activities that they can engage in.

In a world where information is increasingly shared in a visual manner, art history, once a luxury, is now an essential skill.

My students love learning art history, it makes them feel smart and cultured. It sparks their natural inquisitiveness and curiosity and it gives them unique perspectives on periods of history.

My students practice visual thinking skills and take two trips to art museums. This magazine is just one more way to give them tools to learn more about the cultures and values of civilizations past and present.
