My Students

This is my first year teaching high school, and I have been delighted by the excitement of my students to read! I teach a combination of traditional 9th grade English classes as well as a block class for intermediate English Learners. All of my students are reading books of their choice every day— most enter the classroom and hop back into their book without any prompting— and I have so enjoyed watching my students choose books to read and truly fall in love with stories.

My students come from a variety of educational backgrounds, and there is a huge range of skill levels and interests represented in my classes.

I want to provide each student with a text that will challenge and engage them, improving their skill and enjoyment in reading.

My Project

Several times a week, one of my students pulls me aside and quietly asks if I have any period supplies, and I try my best to keep pads available for students in need.

This is an issue of equality and dignity.

Our bathroom dispensers are often empty or broken, and even when they are working, many students are not carrying the required change.

Education should not be interrupted because of a lack of access to supplies needed to deal with this normal part of life for women and girls.

This project will preserve instructional time, and provide my students with books featuring strong women and girls who tackle challenges and thrive where they are.
