My Students

My students are a group of thoughtful, compassionate, and energetic high school students who are eager and curious to learn more about their world! They come to school from diverse backgrounds, engaged and ready to learn. I am amazed by them, and by their perseverance and resilience, especially after a year of distance learning.

My Project

For Latinx Heritage Month, my 11th graders will be reading Octavio Solis's short story collection Retablos: Stories From a Life Lived Along the Border. This book will support our narrative unit by providing examples of storytelling that students will be able to use as inspiration and technical models of effective storytelling. Students will write in their digital notebooks using prompts drawn from Solis's formal experiments.

I am excited to share this wonderful collection with my juniors.

Having paper books really helps students to focus and read at their own pace.
