My Students

I work with the most incredible students! They come to class daily motivated by a passion for learning and growing, no matter the difficulty of the material. Despite the collection of different cultures, there is a sense of unity from everyone in our classroom community.

Students from Room 120 are fun, caring, and inquisitive beyond all else!

One thing we are trying to do this year is rekindle a love for reading that may have disappeared since the days of reading out first chapter books and picture books while in elementary school. And amazingly, it has begun happening! Students come to class really excited to dig in and read.

My Project

As a first year teacher, my students do not have access to a classroom library that will help them explore new genres of literature and find something they really love and connect with. We will begin an Independent Reading unit where students will explore fiction and multicultural literature with the goal of finding a novel they truly love. Students will complete a blog over the course 6 weeks about their novel.

Because of the demographics of our school, the accessibility of great literature and review books to study with can make it difficult for students to reach their full stride with reading and writing.

This is why I've included a class set of AP Language and composition review books. As a school we've made taking the AP test accessible by paying for it. I think they deserve the same review books as other students taking the AP test in different districts across the country.

Grades 9-12
More than half of students from low‑income households
