My Students

Located on an Air Force Base, the students who make up my class family are unique and strive to be the best possible version of themselves each and every day. Every child has parents who serve in the Armed Forces and serves our country each and every day! The connections they are able to create with each other are powerful and long-lasting.

Our class strives to be our authentic selves while empowering own learning as we work towards being lifelong learners.

Every student plays an integral part in our classroom, bringing their culture and previous learning experiences as they strengthen our class bond. My students know the right thing to do and help each other to be themselves. We aim to expand our cultural mindset as we embrace our strengths and our weaknesses. They cheer each other on and if things get tough, they persevere and keep going! Thanks to DonorsChoose, our classroom dreams can become a reality!

My Project

This year, I will be working with 6th, 7th, and 8th graders. My classroom library has grown, but some of the books need replacing so they are age-appropriate and most importantly, culturally responsive. We are requesting culturally responsive and age-appropriate books for their classroom!

Books should be mirrors for students, an opportunity for any young adult or child to see themselves portrayed in a positive manner.

Each of the books found in this project will provide students to learn about themselves and others through own voice novels, realistic fiction, and non-fiction pieces. The books would have a significant impact on each of my middle school students and would be passed down for years to come!
