My Students

The students at our middle school are the most genuine and kindest I've come across since I began teaching. They are exceptionally community and family oriented and that has been all the difference as we are always having to come together after the catastrophic damages from one hurricane after another. Our entire school district is classified as Title I, and most of the schools have been identified as "at risk." As we are positioned in the notorious "Corridor of Shame," many of our students are tragically entrenched in a culture of poverty and despair. With so much funding decided on property value, our students are now enduring the fallout from a struggling economy more than ever. Yet despite these substantial hurdles, including flooding and hurricanes, my students come and try and do their best daily. It is their hopeful and enduring spirit that has led me here for them. They deserve resources at least matching their amazing spirit!

My Project

Finding something to read that you enjoy and can relate to as a middle school kid can be tough. Often the books are too hard or too easy.

With celebrated African-American writer and poet, Jason Reynold's "Miles Morales: Spider-Man" we can inspire young readers with a character that they can not only relate to but looks a lot like them and makes them want to read!

Many of our readers are not on grade-level and have a very hard time visualizing what they are reading! With this set of graphic novels we can do a book study reaching back to their level. It will help students build vocabulary, allow for discussion on narration and dialogue, aid literacy visualization development, and is not a chore or burden to read.
