My Students

Our school is in a diverse urban area, but many students don't see themselves reflected in some of our neighborhood schools. They come to our school specifically because they see themselves in the teachers, staff and other students.

I want students to see themselves reflected in what we read in the classroom.

I want them to see that words and stories are powerful. I want them to have access to materials that are relevant to their lives and create a rich dialogue about issues that they face every day.

With district-wide budget cuts, teachers in our district are left purchasing their own materials for the classroom and using dated or irrelevant materials. I would like to provide my students with a meaningful and relevant learning experience.

My Project

This novel will allow students to see themselves reflected in literature. Through a comprehensive unit on civil rights and race, students will read the novel in tandem with news articles, podcasts, and poetry.

The goal is to engage students in conversations around issues that are complex, timely and relevant.

It is my hope that this unit empowers students to recognize how powerful our voices are and to encourage them to find their own.

Additionally, I have many reluctant readers in my classes. By reading texts that are high interest and meaningful to their own lives I aim to promote reading both with purpose and for enjoyment.
