My Students

My students are preparing to have access to opportunities to achieve their dreams. They are refining their critical thinking skills, increasing their organization and time management capacities, and creating community with each other. They are smart, beautiful, and important in their discovery of leadership and identity development.

Almost all of my students are fluent in more than one language.

They are leaders in their families, and their commitment to education is powerful. Each day, they refine their self-control and deepen their commitment to becoming tomorrow's leaders.

My Project

The books in this project will increase exposure high-interest reads that relate to current events. With these resources, my students will continue on a pathway to loving to read. Reading is the core of almost all jobs, and it is a necessary skill in high school and college. In order to love reading, my students need to experience the pleasure of a well developed story line.

Reading gives us someplace to go when we have to stay where we are.

With this anchor, students explore reading as a means to explore distant places, times, and experiences very different than they own. With these texts, my students will further become explorers capable of critical thinking and leadership. The topics covered in the books relate to current events topics related to immigration, citizen interactions with police, mental health, and how to build relationships with people who are different from us.
