My Students

I work in a neighborhood where only 2.2% of the population has a college diploma and over 68% never completed high school. For the students in my room, 100% will graduate high school and 100% will have acceptance to a university when they receive their high school diploma. From day one of entering our school, the question is not if they will go to school but where! It is the love of reading that begins this journey from a young age.

My Project

I still have scary memories of primary school being told to respond to the prompt on the board and being scolded for handwriting! Today, I want to make sure that my students have an opportunity to think, share, and create through their writing time. Many of my students have to grow up way too fast; it's my job to provide joy and the opportunity to be a creative kid!

My students have big thoughts and lots to share but often do not have a great outlet for expressing themselves.

These writing-specific books will help them explore their creative minds with fun writing prompts to help keep them engaged in writing more! The books selected were carefully chosen because they help support student creativity with writing materials that are more fun than a plain pencil and paper! The fun journals will be opportunities for them to explore their emotions and the world around them by having an opportunity to write about the things they want to share! With your help, we can make writing about sharing, caring, creating, and advocacy - and most importantly - fun!
