My Students

My school is in a rural, low income community of North Carolina. My students love talking about the nearby goats, donkeys, and chickens, as well as getting their hands dirty in the school garden.

My students are energetic and excited about learning, though many of them face obstacles with learning the English language, overcoming special needs, and dealing with difficult home lives.

Many of my students have not traveled beyond our community and limited understanding of the world around them. It is my goal to teach students to be global citizens through critically solving math problems, investigating science labs, and studying their world.

My Project

I have carefully selected award winning picture books that can be used to help teach empathy and social justice. The settings of the books are all across the world and feature characters who are immigrants, refugees, children with special needs, and kids learning to show compassion. As a math and science teacher, I do not have dedicated time to read to my students. I would love to read these beautiful books during morning meetings to elicit meaningful discussions and teach activism in an age appropriate way. I hope to use these books to build classroom community and inspire students to make a difference in their world.
