My Students

Ours is a busy school of 6th, 7th, and 8th grade mixed-level students. We have students with learning challenges and individualized education plans as well as advanced and gifted students taking high school courses. We also have students who speak other languages making English their 2nd language. Our students come from many cultural backgrounds and religions.

My school is nestled between middle income family homes and some neighborhoods comprised of trailer-type and manufactured homes.

Consequently, 63% of our students qualify for the free and reduced lunch program, and our school has been determined to be in a higher poverty area. We work with our community to obtain resources as many of our students and their families are economically challenged.

Administration and parents can only provide a certain amount of materials to establish a makerspace in our media center; we need additional materials to start this project and help our school become even more student centered.

My Project

The book "Night" by Elie Wiesel, presents an account of the author's survival. Most of my 8th-grade students were born in 2004 over 75-85 years after WWII. Holocaust survivors who can share their stories are getting scarce making it important to find another way for students to learn about The Holocaust.

Reading first-hand about Wiesel's nightmare will give my students the opportunity to understand his account and survival of The Holocaust and a Nazi Germany death camp.

"Night" will be the supplemental text to reading "The Diary of Anne Frank," giving students the chance to learn about surviving Hitler's regime as well as falling victim to his atrocities.
