My Students

The students I serve come from diverse cultural and socioeconomic backgrounds. Their attitudes and perspectives of the world are shaped by lived experiences that add depth to our conversations in class. My students come to class with ideas, passions, mindsets, and understandings about their own humanity. My favorite moments from this year included the organic relationship-building interactions with my students and academic “ah-ha” moments during a lesson. One time we were analyzing Eliza Doolittle's character in Pygmalion and a student had an "ah-ha" moment in which he realized that Eliza's character is just like the squeegee boys in Baltimore!

My Project

This year I will begin my very first year teaching 7th grade English at my school! We offer a unique program to ensure students' academic achievement through advisory, enrichment, and remediation. Teachers, school leaders, parents, and students work collaboratively to create engaging opportunities to develop the whole child. We will be starting off the 2020-2021 school year all virtual and may transition to a hybrid model of learning as the year progresses. I strive to be as supportive as possible through building connections with students during live instruction sessions, as well as sending letters/notes of encouragement to them throughout the semester!

As an English teacher in Baltimore City, my goal is to provide my students with opportunities to discover their passions, cultivate their academic strengths, and develop their character in and outside of the classroom.

I believe that classrooms should be brave spaces where students feel comfortable to take risks and make mistakes. This means that all students are welcome to share their perspectives, engage in academic discourse, and make meaningful connections in class. We will begin the year by exploring identity in Medieval Europe. Though it may seem distant, this medieval exploration illustrates the influence of societal forces on identity formation—an influence that remains undeniable in seventh-graders’ modern setting. Students will write their own narratives set in the Middle Ages. They apply historical fiction elements learned throughout their study—historical details supplied by "Castle Diary" and narrative techniques modeled by "The Canterbury Tales" to demonstrate how society can support and limit the development of identity. The Teachers Pay Teachers gift card in my cart will be used to purchase materials that will help my students better access our curriculum. Thank you for your support!
