My Students

Stone Mountain Middle School was the first school in the DeKalb County School System to pilot the middle school concept. The middle grades philosophy centers around a team approach, and each student is part of a team. Each team has four core teachers who teach English/Language Arts, Math, Science, and Social Studies. Four classes of students make up a team and circulate through the same core teachers. Besides the four core disciplines, Stone Mountain Middle School offers Band, Spanish and P.E. Through the exploratory enrichment blocks, students can experience Art, Chorus, Business Applications, and Technology.

Our student population is also diverse, representing twenty countries.

The faculty of Stone Mountain are multicultural, with widely diverse interests. In an effort to give our students varied experiences to grow and learn, we offer numerous clubs and school enrichment activities.

To promote increased engagement and achievement in mathematics and science, Stone Mountain Middle School launched its STEM Program in sixth grade during the 2013-2014 school year. The goal was to expose students to educational and career choices in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM). In doing so, Stone Mountain Middle School focused on project-based learning (PBL) which leads to real-life solutions.

My Project

I am requesting these books for our middle school library to provide reading material, on grade level to our native Spanish speaking students. We are an urban school district that is located to the immediate NE of Atlanta. Our students are from all around the globe including many students who are from Spanish speaking countries, who happen to be refugees.

Making the transition to a new country, a new home and a new school is often a struggle for our refugee students that are native Spanish speaking students and I want to to welcome them into our school community with a quality selection of young adult literature in their native language.

While it is important for these students to learn English to navigate in this country, I don't want these students to lose their native language. It is important for all of us to keep our cultural traditions, including our native language.
