My Students

My students are creative thinkers and problem solvers. They come from all over the world and work in my class to solve complex issues and create wonderful projects.

My students are passionate, talented, and caring, and work hard to learn and grow.

As part of a talented and gifted program, my students agree to do extra work throughout the year in order to expand their minds and what they know of the world. They learn about diverse topics, including 3D printing, Educational Disparities, and The Global Workplace. These topics prepare them for the world ahead of them, and by starting to learn these things in middle school, they are prepared to be global citizens in a changing world.

My Project

"I Am Princess X" tells an engaging story through a combination of the graphic novel and traditional novel forms. I want to give my students access to modern ways of storytelling, and graphic novels give students a way to connect with stories they may not otherwise read.

My students are incredible thinkers who are eager to learn.

This project will not only give them new tools to analyze literature, but will also give them a book that they won't want to put down. We will be using this book to learn about things like metaphor, symbolism, and figurative language in a way that is accessible to all ages.
