My Students

My students chose to take a rigorous AP language and composition class, that teaches them to dissect the written, spoken, and visual world to ensure they can engage with it critically and intelligently.

My students, from all socio-economic levels and many ethnicities, are diligent young men and women who aren’t afraid to challenge themselves academically.

They display a desire to learn rarely seen in public schools. They stay after school for hours to learn and refine concepts. They work collaboratively. They want to be educated. I cannot ask for a more dedicated group of students.

My Project

In communities where the money for education is difficult to come by, ensuring laws are adhered to and needs are met creates a budget that is complex and full of compromises.

In that world, the academically motivated high school students are often forgotten.

Yes, we must take care of the needs of those with special circumstances, whose lives are difficult beyond what most of us can even fathom, but sometimes our students who are diligent and value education get left behind because "those kids are awesome; they'll do well" regardless of the lack of resources. I'd like to show these students--my kids--that they, too are valued. I'd like to make their learning more engaging, and more in-line with what their counterparts in wealthier districts are doing.

I am hoping for Chromebooks to make accessing a 21st-century curriculum full of on-line resources, document editing with multiple editors in real time, creating and presenting documents when the entire class has the presentation in front of them instead of a poster on an easel a reality for these wonderful, kind, dedicated students.
