My Students

I currently teach at a Title 1 school in a rural part of Texas where 89% of the students receive free and reduced lunch and 85% are English Language Learners. Often times school is the only positive, safe, and welcoming environment for my students. I have been told by some students that one of their favorite memories from my class include their independent reading time and read aloud​ of a series. Children love to use their imagination and get lost in their thoughts while reading. What better way to ignite this passion and creativity than to stock a classroom full of exciting books?

We are a community of learners who are passionate, enthusiastic, and determined to become the best students we can be!

My fifth graders will enter the new school year with a variety of reading abilities and academic skills. Each day, we will work to develop the skills and knowledge necessary to be lifelong learners in our community.

My Project

Reading matters! My classroom library is a place where students get excited to use their imagination and practice their reading skills during the independent reading time. Additionally, I read aloud a part of a chapter book at 5th-grade level for about 30 minutes a day. This way, students have a model for fluency, rhapsody, and an overall joy for reading. As an English language learner, books are very important to my students and are imperative when developing language skills. The books in my library are always treated with love and care, and every student in my classroom is thankful for the opportunities to read in class.

Many of my students come from low income households and often times do not have ​space and means to comfortably read at home.

Having an abundant and diverse classroom library will enhance my students' vocabulary, reading level, and content knowledge. Moreover, not only will students have new books to read, but they will also realize how much information they have access to. My ultimate goal is to inspire students to love to read and yearn for knowledge.
