My Students

I have a class of students who are influenced by everything they see. Students often mimic behavior observed. Due to their age, many of them are not sure who they want to be. Therefore, they fall under peer pressure more often than not. Bullying is something that effects my students at some point in their life. I believe it is necessary to teach children what to do when put in a situation that they are made to feel vulnerable.

I teach in a Title I school, with a 80% free and reduced lunch rate.

My students depend greatly on the educational experience our school can give them. More than that, they feel confident in sending them to our school, because here, we teach to the "whole child". Many of their parents have sacrificed so much to bring their children to this country in order to give them a better life. They expect to have their child taught the grade standards, but more importantly, the right principals and values.

My Project

Recently, I have noticed a lot more bullying happening in our school. Many students are afraid to stand up for what they believe in their hearts is the right thing to do. Some students are bystanders, others are the students being bullied, and of course there are the actual bullies. I believe that through literature, children's eyes can be opened to the harshness of bullying.

In this project, I am requesting various picture books that will help students with bullying problems, friendship issues, and becoming better individuals.

I believe that students need to start with a good hard look at themselves, and truly understand how they can become the best version of themselves.
