My Students

My students are eager-to-learn and ready to explore! They come to me from a variety of socioeconomic statuses and cultural backgrounds, which make us a true melting pot. When they come into school, they can put aside all the things that make them different and find one commonality- loving to learn!

With funding being a challenge, I would like to provide my scholars with resources not otherwise provided to them.

We have spirited students who deserve rigorous resources for them to thrive.

My Project

These novels is an autobiography of a girl around there age that is modern, thought-provoking, and interesting. By providing them with such material, I hope to give them an opportunity to have deeper conversations as well as enjoy their reading.

Books are a great way for students to make connections in their lives.

I look forward to giving them an opportunity to read this book and make connections to the text. Relevant, quality text can make such a difference with the students in their interest and quality of conversations that they can have with each other. Book club can be fun!
