My Students

I teach advanced English to high school students in upstate New York. Like so many communities across the country, our area has endured significant economic and demographic changes over the last couple of decades. Nonetheless, our families and students are resilient, determined, and eager to make the world a better place.

My students are writers and readers who will soon enter the world of college and work.

They want to make their mark in the world, and it's my job to prepare them.

My Project

This year my colleague and I ran a successful lunchtime reading club that featured social justice texts. Next year we would like our club to focus on texts from around the world.

Julia Alvarez’s “In the Time of Butterflies “ and Ahmed Saadawi’s “Frankenstein in Baghdad” will help to open up the world for our students.

Both texts present indelible cultural impressions. Alvarez gives us the story of four sisters from the Dominican Republic who fight against a corrupt regime while Saadawi creates a modern twist on an old monster that wanders the streets of Iraq not long after the US invasion.

We will meet to discuss the texts on different days this fall. It is my plan to hand out one of the books prior to summer break. Students will keep the books for their own libraries.
