My Students

My students are creative, thoughtful, and discerning with their reading! They arrive at our campus from all over the district, by car or by bus, the students come to prepare themselves for success in all different areas.

My students take on challenges with gusto and work hard to learn.

They come together from many different backgrounds and neighborhoods to create our wonderful student body. Everyday we celebrate their strengths and grow together as we recite our Lion's creed, "We are S- WE ARE ONE!"

My Project

Our 8th graders will be starting the 2021 school year with Ray Bradbury's novel, Fahrenheit 451. We will study plot structure, figurative language, allusions, along with the importance of literature in the world. I want to provide them with a copy they can check out for the duration of the study and then use for the following years.

Bradbury is a master storyteller.

"There is nothing magical in [books], at all. The magic is only in what books say, how they stitched the patches of the universe together into one garment for us." Help me give my students the magic within the texts as we study and learn together!
