My Students

I teach students from all walks of life, many of whom dream of going to universities and liberal arts colleges to study in fields that demand research, technical writing, and analysis skills. They vigorously debate political questions, write research papers of their own, analyze policy proposals from around the world, and learn a variety of argumentation, contextualization, synthesis, and analysis skills in our class.

My students are deeply interested in books on politics worldwide, and together we want to study the relationship between democracy and freedom in past and present.

This is the foremost theme of the course that I teach: understanding institutional variation around the world, pointing to features that allow us to compare and evaluate countries to gain a better sense of the political landscape across countries.

While we already have a sizable classroom library, many of the students that I teach couldn't afford to purchase a book for an assigned reading. But with your help, I can continue to lend books to my students.

My Project

My students and I have formed a Model United Nations club at our high school. We have already participated in some statewide conferences hosted by major universities in Florida, but the students are hoping to grow our organization and attend conferences elsewhere in the U.S. as well.

Model United Nations gives students the opportunity to step into the shoes of delegates from countries to debate current issues on the organization's agenda.

Students make speeches, prepare resolutions, negotiate with allies, and resolve conflicts—all in the interest of mobilizing international cooperation to resolve problems that affect countries all over the world. In so doing, students learn about the world, become more engaged citizens, meet like-minded friends from other schools, and get a deeper understanding of current events in the world.

In order to better prepare for conferences, we are hoping to establish a little classroom library of resource books to help us in our endeavours. We particularly love the book "My First Model UN Conference," because it is an informative handbook written by a high school senior. With your support, a lot of preparation, and a little luck, we hope to be on our way to participating in more and more Model UN Conferences shortly!
