My Students

I have the privilege of teaching a group of wonderfully diverse students. I teach students with special needs. I teach students who have IQs higher than mine. I teach students who come from loving families. I teach students who hear gunshots at night. I teach students who can't afford yearbooks and students who buy extra yearbooks for their friends.

We are a suburban school that buses students in from the city.

We are a school that believes each student can succeed. We are a school that focuses on relationship building between the teachers and the students.

I am a teacher who wants to give her students the skills to make a positive difference in the world. I am a teacher who wants each student to know how important they are to the world. I am a teacher who wants to give the world to my students and my students to the world.

My Project

As an English teacher, I'm happy to announce that reading is back in style! I've been working hard to create a classroom library that is inviting, diverse, and accessible. So far, it's working! I've checked out more books in 10 weeks than I did all year last year! With so many books being checked out I need to make sure our classroom library has enough great titles to go around.

I want to help students find books they connect with.

I want reading to be an activity that they enjoy and look forward to. Graphic novels have become the most sought after genre in our classroom library so that is one focus of this project. The book bins in the classroom library being empty is a wonderful thing--it means the books are being read! However, the empty bins look sad and need more exciting, relevant titles in them!
