My Students

I work at an ethnically, culturally, and economically diverse Chicago Public School. There are almost 800 students from Pre-K to 8th Grade, 74% of which come from low-income households. The racial demographic at this school consists of mostly Black, Hispanic, and Asian students, many who are refugees new to the school.

These middle school students are full of energy, exuberance, and talent!

I absolutely love coming to work everyday in hopes of motivating and inspiring them to embrace reading and writing.

My Project

As their Literacy Teacher, I make sure the 85 middle school students I teach understand the the writing process and work through the steps diligently. Throughout the year we take so much time to prewrite, draft, revise, (and revise and revise!), then edit (and edit and edit again!) before publishing their work.

These students work incredibly hard, and because of that it is important to showcase their final piece of writing!

They truly love seeing their literary analysis essays, argument papers, and especially their fictional narratives printed out and hung up in the classroom and throughout the hallways.

We have a printer already, we just need to obtain ink cartridges to print out their fabulous papers. Please help this cause!
