My Students

My 103 eighth graders are the reason for my personal growth and resilience. I teach in East Oakland with limited funding and my students are faced with numerous challenges at home and in their community. They are strong advocates for themselves and their families, and I admire their strength and courage to face all adversity and still make it to school.

As their English Language Arts teacher, I watch my students progress as avid readers and strong communicators each and every day.

They stand together as a class to discuss social issues that impact their community and they take great pride in their town. Most of my students have been exposed to gang and gun violence and family trauma, yet their resilience is extraordinary. I have so much to learn from these amazing young adults.

My Project

My students focus very well independently and these earphones will help them work at their own pace. Many of my students have learning disabilities that impact their processing, and working on their tasks independently helps them self-monitor their progress. In my class, students work on listening to articles and independently working on analyzing evidence and theme.

We are almost done with our first unit on horror stories.

Throughout this unit, students brought their own earphones to listen to audio recordings of the stories that we've read. With individual earphones, students will be able to listen at their own pace and work independently to replay any parts of the audio that they may have missed. I am hoping for one class set of earphones that all 103 of my students can access.
