My Students

At first glance, I serve in a diverse, low-income, urban community. My students usually have difficulty finding the funds for basic supplies, but they always try their best to come in prepared. However, for me, that does not define them. What defines them is their tenacity to cling to hope and happiness. They do not allow their home lives to define them and work to smash any negative expectations or stereotypes. My kids are the life of the party; they love to have fun and joke around. Despite this, they know when to settle down and will work hard when I need them to.

These kids are everything to me.

Once you show interest in who they are as human beings, they are on your side forever. They love hard and are well on their way to becoming our future leaders and creators.

My Project

I love to incorporate reading into all of my English classes, but I need a functional library to effectively accomplish this. I need Young Adult literature, Classic novels, biographies, sports memoirs and anything else a high school student might want to read.

My goal is to help my students to think critically while reading material they love.

If they have something they can relate to, they will be more likely to dive head first into the text and analyze it using different lenses. I want to cultivate a love for reading but to do that, I need books.

These books will be used in PreAP English I, English II and Reading for Pleasure. Each of my classes will have time to read in class and have a beautiful classroom library will help my students realize that reading is universal. I want my students to see a library full of choices so they can travel into a different world and emerge a better person because of it.
