My Students

My students are all high school language learners and language arts students in my classroom. Many students are refugees and immigrants seeking better opportunities, education, and a higher quality of life in the United States. These students are motivated to succeed in order to support their families and uplift their communities. They have had to grow up faster than many of their peers, and represent a diverse population of our school. I teach over 100 students who come from over 20 different home countries.

The community of languages and cultures present within the classroom provides a dynamic learning environment for the students.

Our classroom pushes students to become lifelong learners and readers, and I hope to cultivate this love for learning even further.

The students are always pushing themselves to be a better version of themselves than the day before. Whether it be from learning academically or growing personally, their endeavors do not go unnoticed.

With all of this, they do not have access to quality books in their homes and are always asking about new books and when they will be able to check another text out.

My Project

Many of my students do not have their own supplies to bring to school whether it be due to family, personal, or financial burdens. I often ask my students to take out their notebooks for our class but they end up borrowing a sheet of paper from their peers.

With this project, my students will be able to have a dedicated notebook for our class.

They will not have to worry again about asking others for their own supplies. My students are language learners who have always been humble and kind towards one another. We appreciate the gift and opportunity to give them the tools needed to continue learning!
