My Students

I teach amazingly curious, persistent, and passionate 7th and 8th grade students who love to read and discover the world!

We are a Title I school serving brilliant scholars of color in the nation's capital!

We are a school, which encourages inquiry-based, goal-driven personalized learning!

My hope for my students is that they will own and direct their life-long education, become leaders & advocates in our community and nation, and be empowered to choose the adult life that makes them happy and proud.

Please help us to reach our goals!

My Project

We need 20 copies of The Radius of Us for book club! The goal of our book club is to read new, contemporary YA novels featuring people of color and other marginalized groups! THE RADIUS OF US will be one of the books our club will read together. Our club is student run and teacher facilitated. Our students read reviews before selecting the books they wish to read, set reading schedules, create discussion questions, and (when possible!) seek opportunities to meet the authors!

By engaging in discussion around THE RADIUS OF US, my students will learn more about themselves, each other, and the world they will someday lead!

Please help expand the minds and hearts of my BRILLIANT readers!
