My Students

Every day, my students arrive at school with hope for their futures. Our school is a Title I school, which means we have a high percentage of students living in poverty. While poverty brings many hardships, it doesn't taint our attitudes and outlook at our school. Early each morning, you'll hear four hundred plus voices call out our "Bulldog Beliefs" with a rousing howl at the end! Stevens Park Elementary is the happiest school I've ever had the fortune to enter.

While many of their parents are working multiple jobs to provide for their families my students frequently care for their younger siblings and cousins.

Despite all the challenges they face, my students are dedicated readers and learners.

My Project

Graphic novels have been a game-changer in my classroom. Students who lacked the stamina to sit with a chapter book are able to finish whole graphic novels. Because of the descriptive storyboard format, students are able to follow a complex story with the aid of captivating visuals.

Today's graphic novels are much more than comics, they are an enthralling movie on a page.

Students who read graphic novels are able to pick up on characters' facial expressions and match the expressions to the words used. The vocabulary words that proved to be too difficult in a chapter book is now accessible when in a graphic novel. Graphic novels are one of the most popular genres in my class and I can never seem to keep them on my shelves. I'd love to more of the books my students want to read, in their reach.
