My Students

I am a 4-5th grade teacher in a low-income area. My students are 98% Hispanic. I am charged with teaching a reading class with 36 students

When I taught my students Greek and Latin word roots, they became fascinated with Greek and Roman mythology.

As a result of this fascination, they have read the first two books in the Percy Jackson series, about the Greek myths.

I love to see my students so excited by learning these myths. When they read The Lightening Thief, it was wonderful to see them grasping the virtue of persistence from the example of the Greek hero, Perseus.
