My Students

Our high school is located in Northwest North Carolina. Throughout its history, the county has experienced economic ups and downs. Recently, the country lost many jobs due to a major company leaving.

We encourage our students to create opportunities for themselves by developing their personal and professional skills and abilities.

We want our students to feel like people are investing in their future, and that is why we are looking to use donors choose to allow our community and country to choose to invest in these students as well.

My Project

A major goal of my classroom is to connect the students to real life examples as well as open their eyes to the struggles and difficulties faced by different communities and cultures around the world.

"The Boy Who Harnessed The Wind," is a great, easy to read young adult novel that will help my students apply concepts they learn about alternative energy to a real life example.

I will be able to help my students develop literacy skills as well as find motivation in a story about a young man who used his personal drive to help his community.

My students will learn about environmental issues, overcoming obstacles, perseverance, family, and community service. We will use these books as the basis for a couple of projects.
