My Students

My scholars are IB students at an urban inner-city school. Our curriculum is both diverse and rigorous. We strive to provide high quality education to students from all walks of life. My classroom is project-based and scholars lead their own learning with guidance and examples from both me and other professionals in the field. Fulfilling goals set by them for them help my scholars learn the importance of independence and free thinking.

My students are special because of their universal drive to achieve rigorous academic goals for college and beyond.

They are public-school students who have opted in to an extremely demanding college preparatory program. About 60% of our students qualify for free or reduced-price meals, and our student body represents a diverse group of black, white, Latino, multiracial, and Asian students from all neighborhoods of a large city in Indiana.

My Project

I am asking for several subscriptions of the Spanish-language magazines that Scholastic has to offer. These are linguistically accessible for language learners, and they are culturally and developmentally responsive in that they discuss current events, specifically those that are relevant to children and teenagers.

Our current initiative in Spanish class is to build a classroom library that is varied in level and content so that all students can participate in free and voluntary reading.

Engaging students in level-appropriate, interesting reading material is the number-one evidence-based method for expanding their vocabulary in the target language. Making these materials accessible to my students will be a fundamental step in building a comprehensible, immersive Spanish classroom.
