My Students

Most of my students are looking forward to moving out of their parents' home, working, and being involved in their community when they finish school. Others are looking to continue their education in a college or vocational/trade training program.

I teach 46 10th graders

22 11th graders

28 12th graders

I teach at a rural school. I have the pleasure of teaching the same kids for several consecutive years and it is a pleasure to do so. They deserve everything possible to help them succeed.

My Project

Reading Shakespeare can be rough. We all had to read multiple works by this famous writer. These books give a modern day translation to his famous works, while displaying his original words on the accompanying page. 30 copies will of Macbeth will go to my sophomores. 10 copies of Hamlet will go to complete my previously started class set of Hamlet. It really helps to have these books for every student to use. I have been using them with my seniors and it has been a life saver. My sophomore struggle with literacy and could use this to help them succeed.
