My Students

I love that my students never want to stop learning! Most teachers have to struggle (to some degree) with instilling the benefits of life long learning into their students. I am fortunate that I do not struggle with this since my students are already aware of the benefits and thirsty for knowledge. Their thirst cannot be quenched which is amazing! They are asking for more so frequently in fact, that I can hardly keep up with developing new projects for them which is an issue that I will gladly take.

My goal with my students is to continue to foster that love of reading with more fantastic literature, hands on projects and by building their 21st century skills.

I know Donors Choose is going to help me reach that goal and I'm excited to be able to offer my students more to propel them further into excellence.

My Project

Classical education focuses not just on educating the mind but also the soul. As a classically focused school we teach the virtues of: justice, temperance, fortitude and prudence.

These book selections will not only introduce students to high-interest literature, give them opportunities to use academic language to dissect and discuss them but they will also give them strong examples of characters who displayed virtues in the most trying of situations.

Our goal at TPS is to seek out the truth, beauty and goodness in all aspects of life. These books will provide concrete examples of how just that! They will show how virtue is applied to daily life and be an excellent supplement to the curriculum in place for virtue education at TPS.
