My Students

11th and 12th grade students thrive at our school! Not only do they complete honors level high school classes, they do so while also navigating college classes on a community college campus! Our students work hard to take advantage of all the opportunities offered to them through our program.

My Project

Providing students with literature that was created by people who share similar cultures and includes characters or situations that represent their culture is the first step in creating a more inclusive classroom. My initial focus is on finding books to highlight National Hispanic Heritage Month and American Pacific Islander Heritage Month. It is my goal to continue to focus on increasing the diversity shown through my library to include other under-represented groups. Malorie Blackman said, "Reading is an exercise in empathy; an exercise in walking in someone else's shoes for a while." My hope is to create connections build empathy!
