My Students

I service a diverse group of leaders who have the ability and determination to be successful, conducive citizens in society. Most of these students live in underserved communities, but do not allow their socio-economic status to stop them from striving to be the best they can be academically and socially.

Resilient is how I would describe these leaders with everything against them they get the job done despite the odds.

This year alone they received 80% passing on their state assessment and I truly applaud them for their efforts.

My Project

I selected the Scholastic Magazine which will assist my leaders with overall reading and comprehension. It will allow them the opportunity to read about leaders like them. Leaders will be involved in activities that will enhance their overall reading ability. Most of my leaders don't have a the opportunity in their homes to read from various sources. These additional sources will assist them extend their learning beyond the classroom

Media literacy is one area of my classroom that needs enhancement.

Leaders can get updated current event articles to assist them in their literacy centers. These centers will increase fluency and overall reading ability.
