My Students

My students are the most phenomenal kids in the world; I'm sure that every teacher thinks the same thing, but I'm telling you, mine are the MOST phenomenal.

I teach ELA to a group of 8th graders who come from predominately new comer or first generation US families, and who will, with hard work, dedication and a great education, go on to be the first in their families to graduate from high school and college.

They need access to highly engaging and culturally relevant coming of age novels and stories to develop both their ELA skills and to develop the empathy, reflection and joy that only a good story can create. They LOVE to read and I want them to KEEP loving reading!

My Project

Everyone loves a good story. And everyone loves a story where they can root for the hero. I want to provide my class of bilingual and newcomer students with novels and stories that reflect their own cultures and traditions while strengthening and developing their skills in English.

Reading is the ultimate power tool: like the jaws of life, reading pries open minds and doors into places that my students can't even imagine.

I want to be able to provide them with as many of those tools as possible to insure that they can go anywhere.

Given the relative tightness of my school's books and supplies budget, I need to be able to supplement our relatively slim selection with highly readable and engaging grade level books. I LOVE this novel, "I Am Not Your Perfect Mexican Daughter," by Erika Sanchez and I want buy students to see that literature can be about their own stories and their own Latin heritage.
