My Students

My students are an amazing group of hard-working young people. They come from a variety of backgrounds, cultures, socioeconomic statuses, and experiences. Currently, the materials provided by the school are out of date and do not provide the students with representative content. Contemporary novels and text are needed to enrich their experiences in my English class and provide a more complete picture of the literary canon.

These students have high needs to succeed and are very grateful for the support they're given.

I welcome you to support them in any way you can.

My Project

It is important that all students are represented in the content presented in the classroom. Marian Wright Edelman said, "It's hard to be what you can't see." The novel, "The Hate You Give" depicts a series of complex characters that will foster deep conversations about justice, racial tensions, courage, and coming of age. Her novel will help students become aware of others' experiences, build empathy, and encourage students to become advocates in their own communities.

Angie Thomas' rich story will lend to invaluable conversations I believe each student should be engaging in to be a mindful member of society.

Thank you for taking the time to invest in these young adults' lives and supporting education. I am grateful for your help in providing this opportunity.
