  • More than three‑quarters of students from low‑income households

My students are 6th, 7th, and 8th grade English Language Learners who are struggling readers. They are motivated, and want to learn to become better readers. My school is a dual language school, grades Pre-K through 8th, that teaches both English and Spanish. However, we have become a turn around school in the state of CT due to low test scores. The 30 middle school students who come to me for reading support have been identified as the lowest performing readers in the middle school. Most of the students who attend my school are living in poverty, and receive very little support with reading at home. Therefore, it's so imperative that reading be made an enjoyable activity that they look forward to doing.
