My scholars are an amazing and insightful group of students who will become the leaders of the future. They are a microcosm of the community we live in. My students come from a wide array of backgrounds (Native American, Hispanic, Middle Eastern, African American, Hindu, Asian and Caucasian) and from diverse economic backgrounds and family groupings. They are supported by a strong, creative staff of educators and parents who believe in their ability to impact the world around them in positive and meaningful ways.
My students are eager to learn and thrive on new, innovative curriculum, which has real-world applications.
My scholars are so excited to read new rich literature which can help them learn new reading skills. They need new books, with well developed characters, to help them develop their reading comprehension strategies. Kate Dicamillo is an amazing author. As a masterful writer, she paints vivid images that excites our imagination. Her masterful development of characters is undeniable. Students can easily understand how she "shows" their traits, rather than "tells" the reader who the character is becoming. Students can see the change over time as the characters learn crucial lessons which my scholars can easily relate to their own lives.
