My Students

My students are growing up on the outskirts of Atlantic City, and more than twenty-two percent of them are living in poverty. Now with COVID-19 and the livelihood of being shut down, things are only getting worse. The largest industries in this area are hotels and casinos. These workers cannot work from home, so the situation worsens. Drugs, poverty, homelessness, and gun violence have wreaked havoc on this once-thriving city, and my students are living in the midst of this chaos. They are constantly given the message that they are not good enough for state-of-the-art technology, top-of-the-line resources, and comfortable classrooms.

The lack of resources affects the students everyday.

My students need to believe that people are looking out for them and want them to succeed. Everyday, they strive to broaden their horizons and reach for the stars. For many, school is the only safe haven they know. I work to instill in them that there is a bigger world out there than the one they see everyday, that they matter, and they will always have a safe place to explore the world around them.

My Project

My students work and study hard, especially now during the (post) pandemic school year. They do their best to get ahead and strive to achieve above and beyond normal high school students. My students are Early College Students, meaning they get college credit for this course. They do this by taking a college-level course while still in high school. These are dual credit classes. When studying genocide, my students read three to five memoirs related to that genocide we are studying.

This book will give my students a comprehensive look into various genocides of the 20th Century.

This will compliment the memoirs we use, which bring the human element to Holocaust and Genocide studies to life because they tell the personal story of a witness and a victim, who survived. My students will use these books to learn and research about the causes, impacts and ways to prevent genocides in the future. My students will be able to understand the effects of hatred and indifference, when left unchecked.
