My Students

When students walk through the door to my classroom, they know that something exceptional is about to happen. Expectations are high. They are safe. They are respected. They are a part of something. To their left and to their right are other young minds: critical thinkers, innovators, hard workers.

Oregon has the third largest class sizes in the country.

Despite this, my students show up to school day after day with a good attitude and a strong work ethic. They are hopeful and eager to learn new things with an open mind.

My Project

I teach high school seniors. They are trying to find themselves and make sense of the world around them. Throughout my American Government, Sociology, and Journalism curricula, students are required to act as in-depth investigative reporters. Through research and reporting, they are required to articulate their position on a given topic and delve deeper into current events. In my classes, students conduct interviews with family, friends, neighbors and their fellow citizens. These courageous face-to-face conversations, with real people, in real life, enable them to embrace their own curiosity and add life to learning.

With these resources, students will be able to collaborate, brainstorm and even create their own Podcasts and audio files.

This will facilitate getting them outside of their own echo chambers and allow them to hear a variety of new perspectives.
