My Students

My students are incredibly hard-working, hopeful young people living in a vibrant but historically under served urban community. Many of them will be the first in their families to graduate from high school, let alone college. Some are from families who have lived in the nearby projects for generations, and some have moved to the US from countries in Latin America within the last few years. All of them are excited to be in an AP Literature course in their final year of high school as they prepare for their lives beyond graduation.

School is the place where most of them feel safest, and they are all eager to grapple with rigorous, engaging academic work to ready themselves for college--and to return post-college to help their community.

My students have the willingness, the enthusiasm, the desire--the ganas--but what they don't have are the funds. 100% of the students at our school qualify for free meals, and 95% live below the poverty line. They need your help to obtain the kind of complex, compelling, and thought-provoking novels and plays that AP Literature students read to push their critical thinking skills and prepare them for the AP exam--and for college literature courses.

My Project

The more we read, the more we grow--as readers, as writers, as literary analysts, as thinkers. In order to be truly prepared for the AP English Literature exam in May, my students need to read several complex, high-level novels and plays about which they can write. Waiting for Godot fits the bill perfectly: what better way to continue students' exposure to existentialism and absurdism than through Beckett's classic work?

Too often, my students wait for help that never comes.

Thank you for being a force of tangible change for them and for helping to enrich their lives as young scholars.
