My Students

Located in the nation's capital, the school where I teach serves the needs of a diverse community of students and families. My work is complex as I navigate how to build relationships and community across lines of differences like race, class, language, and country of origin.

As a Language Arts teacher working with primarily English learners, my most important task as a teacher rests on my ability to fully articulate the power, complexity, and impact of language.

To communicate is to learn to advocate for oneself and one's community, and that reality is the cornerstone for what I do.

My students learn the importance of vulnerability as they develop their capacity to communicate through reading, writing, listening, and speaking. No experience is more humbling or profound than when a student potential a student has fully realized through their dedication to themselves and their pursuit of knowledge and self-expression.

My Project

I recently taught my students the slang word "hangry" as a way to describe a combination of hunger and anger. Given that I teach third grade, the students have started using this word to describe their voracious appetites for new books.

My students are hungry (or hangry) for reading, and two of the series they love to devour are Dog Man and Amulet.

Currently, I have a limited amount of books from these series in my classroom library, and these books do not stretch very far with a classroom of 42 kids! My students keep begging me for more Amulet and Dog Man books so they can continue to read and see how the journeys of the characters continue!

I am requesting additional sets of books from the Dog Man and Amulet series, as well as other texts from the series that need to be replaced. We will use these books for many purposes. We will primarily use these texts for independent reading. Students will be able to check out these books for entertainment, to learn new information, or to be persuaded to accept new ideas. As a class, we will engage in complex discussions about the content of the series, highlighting dominant themes and storylines with which the students connect.

I want to show my students that their opinions are essential when it comes to choosing the literature we have in our classroom. Please help out my class!
