My Students

We all remember middle school, right? It was a tough time. But it's especially tough to be a middle school student who, on top of everything else, also struggles to learn in a typical classroom. At my school, The Frank O'Brien Academy in Ewing, NJ, we work with students who struggle with behavioral, learning, and developmental disabilities, and who learn more effectively in a smaller setting (only 11 middle schoolers!) with a different kind of rules. I'm the 6th-8th grade reading teacher for this program, and every day I get to work with the most incredible kids.

Despite coming from some really rough backgrounds, these kids come to school every day excited to be in a place where they feel accepted and cared for, and that motivates them to put their best foot forward in the classroom.

One of my favorite moments of my entire teaching career was having my class ask me for extended reading time, so they could finish the chapter of "Somewhere in the Darkness" by Walter Dean Meyers! My students definitely have their own battles that they fight every day, but they continue to push forward towards success. They're the reason I love my job!

My Project

Throughout the quarantine, we’ve been trying lots of different things to keep our students engaged while doing virtual school. One of my students’ favorite parts of the end of the school year was working on a novel study. To be able to complete this end of year tradition, I’d like to give each student their own copy of our novels to keep at home, so we can continue to work together.

I’ve tried many different ways to do a novel study at home, but it’s not the same without having the book in your hand.

My students learn best about reading when they can see the text in their hand and go at their own pace. Help me give them that opportunity.
