My Students

I teach at a Title 1 school in Texas. We are a very diverse campus with ESL, Spanish Bilingual, and Vietnamese Bilingual classes at every grade level.

Our little neighborhood school is part of a Redesign initiative encouraging personalized and problem-based learning.

We encourage our students to take control of their learning by having them choose how they learn best. Our staff uses data collected to identify and target the needs of every child. When we are not working in small groups with our By giving our students what they need to be successful, we are creating future world-changers.

My Project

Our school is rich in different nationalities and religions. Unfortunately many children's books do not reflect the colors and beliefs seen in the classroom. It is critical that my students have access to books that showcase all of them. Representation through literature is exactly what young learners / leaders need to see in their school setting. I have selected a variety of books that feature African American characters. There are also many that are written by African American authors.

Being in a culturally and racially diverse school, it is important that my students see themselves in the books they read.

Being able to read books that relate to them, my students will feel a sense of self and a feeling of belonging in the world.
