My Students

Teaching middle school can be seen as such a challenge to a lot of people. And it can be, but teaching middle school students is so important. This is were I truly believe humans establish themselves and grow in ways that will eventually help them become adults.

So many of my students are searching to find themselves and discover their true identity.

And my passion is to help them. I want them to grow as humans and discover their voice.

With helping me get supplies for my students, you can be apart of the students exploring their identity and the world around them.

My Project

Students love our debate unit, and they find it difficult to get heard as 6th graders. I would like to start a podcast completely run by middle schoolers that discuss current events, school events, books, and so on on a podcast. Community members would have access to the podcast, as well as the school. Students could learn how to create a podcast.

Students also have a passion for reading and reading outside of their comfort zone.

Having students do a class novel really helps them to understand the reading better. They can make inferences based off of pictures and can continue that in other reading. Anya's Ghost has a lot to offer students because it is based on a girl around their age who struggles to fit in.
