My Students

I teach in a public High School grades 9-12. We have 60 students among three different classes in Government and Civics this year. The combination of a small school and close knit town provides a strong sense of community where everyone supports and encourages each other. Each family varies in our community and many students live with grandparents, guardians or other family members. While each child comes into the high school at a different place, they all do their best to continuously live up to our school's high standard of learning.

Eager, enthusiastic, and compassionate; my students are ready to explore the world and challenge themselves.

Our school is fortunate enough to have a 1:1 ratio for students and laptops. However having a physical copy book for most students is rare. Even our media center is transitioning to digital books. I want my students to be able to hold history in their hands and be so immersed with the story they turn page after page continuing the story. Having physical copies also allows students to take home the book and not have to worry about mechanical difficulties.

My Project

Education is changing every single day, and so are the interests of my students. Most students do not enjoy reading and writing and struggle heavily with the subjects. My hope is that my reading a personal, intriguing story, students will become engrossed in the literary world and want to read more.

No matter the grade level or reading level these students connect to human stories and emotions.

Students are intrigued by the Holocaust and personal stories. Helping these students begin to learn that reading is fun is perfect way to build better readers or reading skills. Students will use the physical copy of the book as well as photographs, interviews and diagrams to interpret the text.
