My Students

We are five periods of 8th-graders within a middle-class community who are dedicated to football, dance, video games, and learning. In my classes, I have a mixture of gifted learners, English Language Learners, and learners who struggle with disabilities.

I teach the leaders of tomorrow: the dreamers, the inventors, the artists, and the dedicated; they are all a big deal.

My students love to be challenged, to consider new ideas, to learn new ways of thinking. They enjoy working with each other, bouncing their new ideas off one another. They are working hard to find out who they are, what they believe, and where they fit in.

They embrace this challenge with passion and perseverance.

My Project

I am hoping to receive class sets of novels so that my students can participate in book clubs this coming school year.

One of the single biggest indicators of student success is the amount of reading they do and one of the biggest influences on student reading is student choice.

The idea of student-led books clubs is that students get to choose the book they are reading from the options provided by the teacher and then they work together with their groups to read, discuss, debate, understand, and apply the text to their lives.

Research has consistently shown that student book clubs dramatically increase student reading and by increasing their reading, we begin to make lifelong readers, who can empathize with others, who can question what they are told, who can think critically, and who will become the leaders of tomorrow they were born to be.

Please donate toward my students' book club.
