My Students

My classroom is full of life and every student is welcome. I have many students who eat lunch with me or visit me who are not in any of my classes. My classroom is a safe zone where kids can feel comfortable to be themselves.

My students come from mixed demographics.

However, I have a larger percentage of kids from underprivileged homes. Everything that I request for my classroom is directly used with all my students. My kids are full of life and are eager to learn. They are all around 12 to 13 years old and will be adults in the next five years. They are the future of our country, and I take teaching them very seriously. They will be the people who change the world!

My Project

My students will be reading Unwind, by Neal Shusterman. The book covers many different issues that impact many teenagers today. We can use these issues to enhance our inquiry process in our AVID tutorials.

This book can make a huge impact on the lives of my kids!

I have been reading this book with my students for the last few years and they love it. Many of my kids continue reading the series after we finish the first book.

Please help me give my students an opportunity to fall in love with reading! Reading is the key to being successful in all of their classes!
