My Students

My school is in an urban based district Title I School, where 100% of our students qualify for free or reduced price lunch. Ours is a Focus School. I have the extreme privilege of teaching and mentoring some amazing, yet often, underprivileged students.

Observing the connection between heart and head when they find that one book or story that reaches them is so inspiring as an educator.

Finding that one story that finds them is what it's all about, even when the idea of reading is something that they fight to love.

My Project

This story will give my students the the opportunity to embrace a powerful story based on true events. This story will bring amazing and thoughtful discussions of insight and meaning into our world within the four corners of our classroom.

One of the great achievements and memories as a student and educator lies in the power of sharing and showing truly inspiring events of hope.

Memories of impacting pieces of literature, stories, and the teachers who taught them, are embedded in my heart and mind. This is a treasured gift I hope to bring to my students as well.

I plan to bring powerful activities through reading, writing, reflection, and collaboration. Embracing the power of life through a meaningful and enriching world experiences is a part of education and personal enrichment.
