My Students

I work at a school where sometimes there is little hope because my students have experienced a lot of trauma.

I want to create an environment where I can bring truth and life into my students so they will understand that they are valued and have a purpose that is not defined by their circumstances.

The high school is mostly Native American students who are homeless, do not have both parents or are raised by grandparents. I love that my students are willing to try even when they have had a lot of pain in their lives.

My Project

This resources will be used to read and annotate the work in order to find the literary devices an author uses to bring meaning forward. I also like to be organized since I have over a hundred students and the materials I asked for in this project will facilitate structure.

My students feel a sense of safety when as a class, we are organized and have the materials we need to be successful in the classroom.

These resources will ensure that we are not lacking what we need to dig deep into poetry and literary works that may be difficult to comprehend.
