My Students

My students are from a small community with high expectations but limited resources. Students are expected to look beyond the classroom and into the world to develop solutions to everyday problems. Students take on this challenge with rigor and purpose developing projects that address issues in their families, communities, state, and nation. They are the solution seekers of the future and deserve all the support they can get.

I endeavor to make learning experiences in the classroom both enjoyable and memorable.

By providing students with the opportunity to take their learning beyond the classroom and developing partnerships with community stakeholders, I can provide the best learning environment possible. Such experiences not only improve the livelihood of the students themselves, but also improve their families and the community in which they live.

My Project

In an effort to provide more literacy to my classroom, my class needs more books. "The Omnivore's Dilemma" is a book addressing food and how it is produced. In a community where food insecurity is a high priority, it is necessary that I educate my students on healthy, cost effective meal planning, as well as the how the production of food effects our environment and our health.

My students learn to identify areas of concern in their community and how to address those concerns with rigor.

As they dive into this book and the lesson, I will expect them to set goals for themselves, and to make a difference to those in need. Please help me to provide this literature as a basis of this unit.
