My Students

My students are hard working and have the dream of improving their lives and their children's lives by working through adversity and graduating high school.

Coming from all walks of life, my students find themselves unified through having a second chance to break the cycle and make a better life for themselves and their children.

Determined to succeed, my students always go the extra mile to do their best to apply themselves and surpass the chain and struggles that try to hold them back.

My Project

Graphic Novels are a fun visual way to get students involved in reading. Having the graphic and text frozen in place allows students to take in and process the information of what is going on in the story at their own pace.

Chicken and Plums, I am Alfonso Jones, American Born Chinese, and As the World Burns 50 Simple Things You Can Do to Stay in Denial are four influential graphic novels that look at different aspects of social justice in today's world.

Students will work in small groups, called Literature Circles. Each group will be reading a particular graphic novel. Together they will analyze the text and make connects to themselves, other texts, and the world. As a class, we will make cross-text connections and see how students can raise their voices about different social justice issues in their own world.
