My Students

My students are my world. I teach in a lower economic area and for some of my students, school is their escape. Our community has lost a great deal of its businesses over the past decade and it shows on our students' home lives. We are dealing with generational poverty and transfer payments.

My students are creating dreams and learning that hope is free.

My classroom focuses on what we can do as a community and as individuals. Most of my students want to continue on to college/technical school. We are determined to not let poverty hold us back.

My Project

My Honors World History class is a little different. I teach the course starting with modern times and then we progress toward ancient times.

I would like to incorporate the novel "1984" as a way to incorporate reading into a history class, create a dialogue about the effects government can have on its citizens, compare current global government climates with those represented in the book (and other governments as well) and develop a critical mindset that questions the status quo.

These may not seem like important issues, but for a high school student in my community, critical thinking is very hard. We have a community of apathetic voters and my students tend to support the ideals of their parents without question. I want to expand their circle of understanding and help them learn that the world is bigger then our county/state.
