I teach English to Middle school-aged kids. My students from Philadelphia are inquisitive, compassionate, and creative. They absolutely love hands-on, active, engaging projects and challenges that allow them to think outside the box to find solutions! They aspire to inspire me every single day to be bold and confident. They are extremely original. They challenge themselves to become better each and every day.
English class is "LIT" as they would say to make reading more enjoyable.
Creating a comfortable environment for my students to continue growing is very important to me. Channeling who they are within, while allowing them to express their own individual uniqueness, will develop the amazing leaders I know they will be in the future.
Most students learn more effectively when they are intrigued by the material in front of them. The students will use this book, The Contender, as their fall reading assignment. As well as being able to use literature as a direct connection to real-world events.
By donating to our project, you will not only help to improve and increase student attention and focus, you will ultimately help to increase their academic achievement by giving them something they will enjoy reading.
My students are warriors and enjoy reading about others who have conquered a diffcult time in their life. Along with just loving and learning about sports.
