My Students

Our students are racially diverse and approximately 60% economically disadvantaged. A significant number of our students have very limited access to quality print or digital materials. Many are English Language learners. This means that while they are bright and capable, most are lacking academic level skills in English.

Providing these smart young people with the quality text sources increases their excitement and engagement in the classroom as well as their value for education, improving the likelihood that they will go to college.

Please help me encourage these young thinkers by donating the funds necessary to feed their curiosity.

My Project

This project brings high quality magazines with engaging articles just for the 6th grade audience into our classroom.

Time features current events, while Muse offers the latest information about current science, technology, and art advancements.

In addition, the pages of Dig feature colorful, primary source articles about events and periods of world history that are sure to deepen students' understanding of their Social Studies topics.

These issues are costly for our students' families and simply aren't an option for most homes, but if we can provide access to them in class, the high interest articles can promote the acquisition of academic vocabulary and a well rounded understanding of the world around them.
