My Students

My students are an interesting bunch, to say the least. Living in the city of Newark, many of my students have struggles that the average person doesn't have to handle. Many of the daily tasks that seem simple to you and me, my students tend to struggle with.

In my classroom, we take pride in knowing that many of my students come from diverse backgrounds, many of whom are first-generation Americans!

Many of the students struggle to make ends meet, whether that is finding money for their next meal or looking for a jacket to wear to school. That being said, both my ninth- and tenth-grade classes are filled with vibrant students that try to make the best of every situation. My students enjoy learning through a creative route and are constantly looking for new ways to push themselves in the classroom.

My Project

My students must keep up with the latest advancements in education to spark an interest in reading. Education is changing every single day, and so are the interests of my students. My students are extremely interested in social justice and helping to fight for a cause. Therefore, I have picked our newest book club book, "The Hate You Give."

My readers are ready to take on such a powerful subject and discuss real-life matters.

Students who read books collaboratively often tend to get more from the books. This project will help my students grow and discuss ideas, which some classes may refrain from speaking about. I can't wait to see how my students learn from this book!
