My Students

I want my students to be at home in our classroom and be able to have a variety of books for us to read as a class. I want the students to be exposed to books they have not read in school or on their own.

I have some amazing students!

The students are eager to learn and create. They also enjoy sharing their thoughts and opinions. I have a lot of talented young people, and I am enjoying getting to know them and helping them make their dreams come true.

My Project

Using the No Fear Shakespeare Hamlet books will allow my students to find their inner appreciation for Shakespeare's works. Shakespeare can be difficult for students, and I don't want them to dread Shakespeare's works.

If they can read and enjoy this one title, maybe they will look forward to reading more of Shakespeare's works.

Students will encounter Shakespeare throughout high school and college. A good foundation of traditional literary works will help them now and later.

We will read the traditional work in large groups, and students can then use the modern translation when they work in groups or work on their own.
