My Students

My students live in southwest Ohio, surrounded by agriculture and failing infrastructure. Because the school has declining enrollment, opportunities for genuine learning opportunities must come from the creativity of our community and our teachers. Many of our families once had high paying factory jobs that have dried up and are now struggling to make ends meet.

My students seldom have the opportunity to meet people outside their impoverished almost all white school system.

My 10th graders are high taste readers who often find the classics of the past uninteresting, and our school struggles to provide resources for anything modern enough to not be on the Gutenberg Project website.

My Project

One of my teacher missions is to encourage my students to become people who strive to make our community a better place.

My students live in a small suburb that limits their connecting with the lives of people they don't know.

The Hate U Give will provide my students an opportunity to connect to literature that is relatable, consequential, and that contains characters who act as they might while looking very different from what they are used to. The novel will provide a window into the lives of others, as Dr. Rudine Sims Bishop describes in "Windows, Mirrors, and Sliding Glass Doors," and increase their empathy. The result is that my students will be more kind towards others and pursue reading instead of feeling forced into it. I hope these young people discover a love of reading and develop a sense of social awareness in the process.
