My Students

My classroom is full of life and every student is welcome. I have many students who eat lunch with me or visit me who are not in any of my classes. My classroom is a safe zone where kids can feel comfortable to be themselves.

My students come from mixed demographics.

I have a large percentage of kids from underprivileged homes. Everything that I request for my classroom is directly used with all my students. My kids are full of life and are eager to learn. They are all around eleven to twelve years old and will be young adults in the near future. They are the future of our country and I take teaching them very seriously. They will be the people who change the world!

My Project

My favorite book in the whole world is To Kill a Mockingbird. I love teaching it to my kids and pairing it with a history lesson on civil rights. However, 6th graders are not ready for such a complex book. So I found this abridged version that is a great introduction to the book and I can teach the same themes.

I wanted you to see what real courage is.... These famous words from Atticus Finch can teach us what it really means to have courage and strength.

Our project is to read the novel and learn about the time period during the great depression and how it led to the challenges during the civil rights movement.
