My Students

My sixth graders are progressing as readers and writers and learning how to be successful socially, emotionally, and academically in middle school.

Each student is discovering inspiring authors, developing an original voice as a writer, cultivating an artistic talent and navigating the fascinating, and often challenging, modern world of adolescence.

Thanks in part to generous donors over the years, my students have a rich classroom library full of award winning titles and diverse authors. Every year, we add to it as much as possible.

My Project

I'm looking forward to adding a few excellent new books into the mix for book clubs this spring. One of them is Free Lunch, a memoir of a middle school boy growing up in poverty in an abusive home with a young sibling to look after. Nothing came easy for Rex, and his story is moving and powerful. Another is called Some Places More Than Others which takes place mostly in Harlem. It's a beautiful story of the bonds between families and the unique history of each one. Front Desk and New Kid are each winning award after award and I think they are books our students need and deserve in their classroom library. In addition, I've selected a variety of other realistic fiction books I think will be important and engaging. With your contribution, I will not only supplement my collection for this year's group of 6th graders, but be able to share these great books with my classes for years to come.
