My Students

In any given year, over 150 9th grade students walk through my doorway hoping to learn something from me. These students come to me with differing personal and academic struggles, and I strive to help them grow and flourish as students and individuals.

On any given day, students walk through my door seeking advice, comfort, direction, support, compassion, inspiration, and so much more.

They will come from many different walks of life and academic experiences and hold numerous opinions different from those around them.

My Project

Every year, Spanish-speaking and reading students enter my classroom seeking to continue their learning despite not understanding English. As freshmen in high school, they are seeking answers to questions they have about themselves, their new home, and the world around them. I have attempted to create a diverse library helping all my students find these answers; however, I have a limited number of Spanish texts in my classroom.

Spanish texts of popular novels I have on my shelf in English would enable my Spanish-reading students shared reading opportunities with their peers.

After reading a novel in Spanish, the student can work with another student who has read the novel in English or Spanish to practice reading strategies and writing and speaking skills.
