Mrs. H.’s Classroom Edit display name

  • California (North)
  • More than half of students from low‑income households

https://www.donorschoose.org/classroom/1718924 Customize URL

My students are inner city, students primarily of color, living in low low to middle low income housing. I had 70% of my students entering 4th grade, reading and writing at 2nd to 3rd grade levels. Our school is located in what has been identified and designated as a "Superintendent Zone" school. This means that our school has traditionally been underserved by the school district and city services for over a generation. Most of my student's parents are not college graduates. Some parents did not complete high school. I am working to instill the dream that this generation will be college graduates. A love of reading and appreciation of good writing skills will help ensure that they will be prepared to reach this goal. Currently the children are enjoying being read to on a routine basis. This semester I want them to read to each other. Can you help me help them to create books I know they will love reading again and again?
