My Students

This is a fantastic class of AP Language students that I had the opportunity to teach last year in Honors American Literature as well. They are bright, talented, and creative readers and writers that I would like to prepare for the AP Exam this year!

This class deserves every opportunity to pursue their dreams of higher education!

To do this, we need to be prepared! We are in desperate need of new textbooks that are up to date and aligned to the most recent College Board Standards. With the right materials, we will be set up for success to prepare for the critical AP Exam, that will give students the opportunity to earn college credit. What an incredible advantage this will give students as they prepare to pursue higher education after graduation!

My Project

This project is part of a campaign to provide textbooks for my AP English Language and Composition classroom. My students are bright, creative, and dedicated to their learning and very deserving of every opportunity to excel on their AP Exams!

AP Classes provide students rigorous learning and the opportunity to get a head start on post-secondary education!

Many of my students come from low income homes and by maximizing their opportunities for AP classes, they minimize their post high school costs for higher education. The more opportunities they have to earn credits now, the more doors open for them in the future.

I need as many resources as possible to get them on their way to earning those credits. The most BASIC resource I can provide for them is a textbook. And that's where you can help. Please consider helping me with the materials I need to prepare my students for this course, for this very rigorous exam and for post-secondary education as well.
