Years of experience
Students this year
I teach in a wonderful middle school. We have an integrated curriculum, where students ask questions about themselves, their community, and the world, which are then grouped into possible themes. Students vote on themes, and we teach what students are interested in, incorporating learning standards from all content areas into each class.

On our team, we do fundraisers; this year, we are hoping to take a trip to a homesteader to learn about off-grid survival. We are also gradually buying our own books and resources; from each of our paychecks, we purchase books that will help our students to see themselves in stories AND to learn about others through diverse literature. We earn points from Scholastic, so we can add a few books every few months.
How will funding help my students?
We are building a team library of diverse books, so we can learn from other people's stories, as well as our own. (So far, we have personally bought the vast majority of the books on our team.)
We are also hoping to get a subscription to Junior Scholastic for another resource for current events.
Students work in multi-age classes to ask questions and vote for themes that teachers use to teach the standards.
Number of students who will be impacted: 75
