My Students

I am beginning my teaching career in an urban area, with students coming from diverse backgrounds with many school and life experiences. In my classroom, I am looking forward to creating an environment in which students feel safe, comfortable, and enjoy learning by having access to materials they need.

I strive to incite wonder and curiosity in my students so that they love to learn and have vast experiences in our interconnected world.

By having my projects funded, I will achieve these goals.

My Project

The books in this set are made up of mostly historical fiction texts. They range from Black History, to Native American injustices, to the Woman's Suffrage Movement, and beyond. With vibrant illustrations and colorful word imagery, students are sure to want to dive into reading these phenomenal books.

I want my students to hear history from an uncommon perspective: those who lost it all.

By hearing history from the side of the people who were unjustly treated, students will begin to question current systems in place. These books will offer another perspective than many are used to, and push students to be global thinkers who question and challenge the status quo. I am looking forward to reading and discussing these books with my students.
