My Students

My students are fun, caring, and open to learning. They love to read and explore new topics. My classroom make up is 100% Caucasian students with more than half of them identified as low SES.

The lack of diversity in our community is no fault of my students, but it is my job as their teacher to make sure they are aware of the different cultures, races, and genders that will be a part of their life once they are adults.

Together we can raise a generation that is open and welcoming, provided we have the appropriate tools like these books.

My Project

My students need to experience the world beyond their community. They need to learn about different religions than their own, the triumphs of all genders, and become aware of humans of all races. One of the best and most effective way to do this is through quality children's literature that explains and shows these things at a level students can understand and remember. In a society as diverse as our world is today, students who may not get to experience this diversity on a daily basis must be exposed to diversity in other ways to foster acceptance and inclusion at a young age.
