My Students

The students I teach are all under-served, inner-city, minority students of many backgrounds. While most are of Hispanic descent, we serve a small population of Muslim or Middle Eastern, African American, Asian, and Anglo. Our students come from distressed socioeconomic and impoverished areas, still, they have never let this be a barrier for success. Many of our students have met standards, attained high gains and excelled at levels not expected by this population. Believe it or not, our little school is the jewel in the rough that outshines them all!!

My Project

Many of my students lack knowledge of the world, its greatness or wonder. Their experiences are limited to only their neighborhoods or surrounding places that support their community. I would like them to have more opportunities to research fascinating places of wonder, so they can enrich their writing through poetry and essays.

I want them to study poetry from around the world.

When we understand the world's greatness, challenges, and wonders, then we can only have a better understanding of people. This year, I will be starting a Slam Poetry Team and I hope this will greater enrich their writing. I hope they can learn about other cultures, so they may gain a greater appreciation of other cultures.
