My Students

My 9th grade students are incredible! They are part of the Freshman Academy, and are very excited to start their high school careers. We just finished our first week of school, and they are already exceeding all of my expectations.

Even during this first week, I have witnessed how well they work in teams during class activities.

I also have seen so many students who are willing to help their peers when they are struggling to understand the material in my class. I can't wait to see what amazing learning will take place in my classroom this year!

My Project

The Amazon Fire tablets will serve as a great monthly prize for our Freshman Academy Town Halls. One student will be chosen to be recognized with this prize based on how well they have been doing in their classes.

The classroom set of "The Hate U Give" will be a great book for our freshmen to read together and have rich discussions with.

This book is extremely relevant to our students, due to the fact that most of the students in our school are Black or Brown youth. We are hopeful that our students will be able to read this book before the movie based on the book comes out in October!

Students will receive hot chips as a prize every other Friday if they are on track in all of their classes and have been doing all the right things throughout the previous two week period in school. Our students LOVE hot chips as a snack, so this is the perfect incentive for them!
