My Students

I am a ten year veteran teacher at a Title I school in an older part of the town that I live in. My students are hardworking and driven. However, we often times lack up-to-date resources that are thought provoking and intriguing. Most of these students will be the first in their families to go to college or into the military. Several actually want to move away from home in order to see what else is out there for them.

The school is ninety-nine percent Hispanic and they come from low socioeconomic households.

We are in a military rich town and community, and my students get to experience some of their family members join one of the armed forces as opposed to going to college. My students and I work together to see the world through different lenses and not just within a few square miles of where our school is located. I prepare my students for college, technical jobs, the military, and, overall, the real world.

My Project

My students have learned so much by reading the engaging graphic novel, March: Book One, by John Lewis and Andrew Aydin and illustrator, Nate Powell. The profound and heartfelt discussions have been some of the best in my career.

Their desire to learn more about this important time in history is breathtaking as their teacher and I want to continue to fan this desire by getting them the final book in the series, March: Book Three.

I want to get this book into their hands so we can continue strong discussions on the matters of equality and justice and standing up for you believe in. My students are just coming into their own voices and need John Lewis' story to help them see that sometimes in order to invoke change one must go through trials of their own dedication and of those around them.
