My Students

I teach college and career ready literacy skills to an amazing group of sixth graders in the District of Columbia. My students are diverse, resilient, and caring. I am privileged to be their teacher.

All of my students are focused on obtaining the excellent education that they deserve.

In our classroom, we take risks and do not give excuses. All of my students are advocates. All of my students are leaders and what makes my students truly special is their empathy and creativity.

We are a community that works hard, does not give up on each other, and that reminds each other why this work is important each and everyday.

My Project

These culturally responsive books, reading nook carpets, pillows, and love seat will help my student focus on raising their Lexile levels and using their time wisely in our classroom!

Students will feel empowered to choose complex texts from our classroom library and the environment in which they want to enjoy these new books!

These materials will help all students limit distractions and all each scholar to be comfortable and productive while dropping everything to read. Learning environments can have a direct impact on student achievement. These materials will deepen our commitment to learning and growth. We are urgent learners on a mission to be advanced readers by the end of the year!
