My Students

I teach at a high school in a small rural district. Our high school specializes in teaching students with special needs. Our building is small enough that everyone knows everyone. These students do not have much of a chance to explore the world past the edges of our county. Many of the students come from single-parent homes and are not provided with opportunities to learn outside of school. My mission is to provide them with exciting, fun activities and learning in school.

My students are excited about learning, creating, and challenging their minds.

This is where they learn about teamwork, determination, and learning new strategies. They can use these skills in school and outside of school. I want to continue the opportunity to develop their skills during our day together no matter what subject we are learning!

My Project

Our classroom will be reading many books this year. The goal is to read books that coincide with our 9th grade U. S. History class and also books that are pertinent to what is happening in our country. Students will be reading, discussing, and learning about "real events" and their opportunity to make a difference.

The book, Just Mercy: A Story of Justice and Redemption, is a great start to introducing high school students to information and a way to take action for a change.

They would be able to personally relate to the story and use the words and actions to interpret the news and make personal goals for their life.

I would love to have a set of seven books, so each student could read from their own copy. I think this book could really change some ways of thinking.
