My Students

Our students are hardworking individuals from a diverse community who deserve to see themselves in the texts they read. They get excited when a character has a similar background to their own. Being able to relate to a character because of those traits or because of context really allows the students to build the metacognition needed to develop a greater understanding of the world around them.

Diversity in literature will diversify our learners' experiences further, thus building a stronger foundation of community.

Our students deserve to understand one another more, and these books will help them do that.

My Project

Our Project LIT Book Clubs across the county are pairing together to learn about writing psychological thrillers and horror-filled scenes from the one and only Tiffany D. Jackson. Tiffany has written club favorites such as "Allegedly" and "Monday's Not Coming."

Our students are leading the planning on an all-day affair with sessions from Tiffany D.

Jackson, break-out rooms with specific writing challenges, and community building with readers in the county. Our event takes place on October 27th - the perfect time of year for spooky storytelling. And Tiffany D. Jackson is the perfect author to guide us.
