My Students

I didn't choose to become a teacher, teaching chose me. I started out as a substitute teacher in Camden, NEw Jersey as a side gig and little did I know how much my life would change. I realized how important it is for students to have a role model who understands them and I'm here to make a difference!

I currently teach World History.

I would like to take the opportunity this year to not just teach what's in the textbooks, but also give my students important historical information they need to better understand the world and make a difference. My students are mostly African American and Hispanic. They face many of the challenges teens face growing up in an inner city environment. We are also battling the achievement gap that minorities in America are dealing with nationwide. My students need more than a "traditional" education. Everything in this project is geared towards giving students knowledge of self and knowledge of wealth. The goal is to give students the proper understanding of the world they live in and how they can survive in it. The education they will receive will stretch far beyond a classroom.

My Project

This project includes books to conduct research and gain inspiration while improving reading levels of students for better academic performance. I have requested books like Rich Dad Poor Dad. Building our class library will also give students the knowledge of their heritage. Also included are DVDs with important historical information not found in textbooks. My classroom lacks the proper technology (Desktop Computer, speaker, and proper projector cords) so a projector is included in order to watch the DVDs, PowerPoints and video clips. With the maps and timelines included students will be able to grasp the bigger picture and understand the past and how it will help them create the future.
