My Students

This is my first year as an actual teacher at my school. I spent one year as a City Year and another as a long-term substitute teacher, both in ELA classrooms. This year I will be teaching Social Studies. My students are incredible! I cannot wait to see them learn and grow even more, just as I have over the past two years.

My classroom will be a community, a safe space, for my students to be challenged, make mistakes, explore curiosities, and develop as students and individuals.

They constantly amaze me with their intelligence and deep desire to be successful. They deserve an environment that will support their learning and growth, with the necessary resources to promote academic exploration.

As a Social Studies teacher, I plan to focus primarily on teaching an honest account of history. Too often textbooks gloss over important events and people, specifically the experiences of people of color. I plan to highlight these narratives in my teaching. I want my students to see that history is more than memorizing dates and names. History is living; it has led us to where we are right now, personally and nationally.

My Project

The materials I requested will help me to truly teach my students American history. I want them to develop a love of it and have the resources to be able to explore their US History interests on their own. All of the resources I requested (shelves, books, and posters) will become a part of our classroom library, which I will utilize in my teaching but will also be available to all students at any time.

My hope is to create a classroom library that is well-loved!

I want it to be a space that my students go to for help with classwork, but also to explore diverse perspectives and histories.
