Alexa Garvoille is a ninth grade English teacher. At the beginning of their freshman year, her students at Durham School of the Arts wrote personal memoirs over the course of six weeks. They brainstormed, drafted, and redrafted, until the final product emerged. Now, their voices can be heard beyond the classroom in these collections of authentic student writing, published by a group of students on the DSA Publishing team.
