My Students

My students are curious and passionate. They are eager to learn all they can and make a difference in the world they see around them. Many of my students talk about going to college and then coming back to make their community in Hartford a better place. They are brave, bold, and unafraid to speak their minds about what they know is right.

My students are hungry for an education that speaks to their passion and feels relevant to their lives and challenges.

They are empowered and inspired by working for social justice, and, in my classroom, we talk daily about issues my students see in the headlines that affect their daily lives.

My Project

"Why do we need to know this?"

This is a common question students ask when they're told we're studying economics, and it's a question I work hard to answer in meaningful way.

My students are high school juniors and seniors, about to go out into the world and set their own course.

The books I'm requesting will help spark discussion about relevant issues in economics in our class. They are engaging texts that will capture students' interest while also helping them understand the complex ideas we're tackling in our classroom. By using these class sets to set up small-group reading seminars, I hope to help my students see that an understanding of economic issues is important and will help them be the change agents that I know they can be in the world.
