My Students

I teach high school at a low-income school, and most of these students have had a tough life. In many urban communities students are not supplied with the same tools found in more affluent areas. They too are deserving of resources to help them strengthen and grow in to good citizens. I believe that one adult can be the determining factor for change in a student's life. We never give up in my classroom. As a teacher, I can change the path of a child’s life for the better. What other job can impact the future like that?

My Project

As an educator, I am aware of student resistance to homework and hope that rather than an assignment, my students will pick up the habit of daily doses of reading which will be provided from theses books.

Research supports the strong positive correlative effect of 20-60 minutes of daily reading and consistently shows that time dedicated to reading pays off.

These selected books will be tailored to my student's learning level and interests.We collectively expect our students to read and, as students often do, they will rise to the expectation.
