My Students

When I was a kid, I thought that all schools were like the one I went to. As I grew older, I learned the truth of the matter - that some schools have access to resources more than others. And as I became a teacher, that truth became more of a reality.

My school is special.

My students are unique. They deserve to get an education filled with whatever resources they need. Please help make that a reality for them.

My Project

Many of the books our school possesses belong in the western canon of literature. While these books are worthwhile, our students, and all students for that matter, benefit from cultural representation in the novels they read.

While it's not my job to make students think one way or another, it is my job to help them come in contact with texts that will teach them more about themselves, their culture, and how they fit into the larger picture of life.

My students need to know that western characters are not the only heroes in literature. They need to know there are characters that look, breathe, think, and act the way they do. By adding this book to our repertoire, we help begin that process.
