Mrs. Griffith from New Paris IN is requesting Books through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

My Students

Although I do not know the students that will be in my classroom in the coming year, my goal is to create a reading community in my classroom. These students have put in a lot of work over the course of their education careers. This will be their final year before moving on to the Junior High.

They deserve a classroom in which the materials are of the utmost quality.

It is my desire to be able to supply these students with the most current and up-to-date materials.

My Project

My goal as a teacher is that each child walks away from my classroom at the end of the year with a new found love for reading. I will be starting my first year as a sixth grade teacher after teaching first grade for 11 years. I am starting to collect books for my classroom and would like to be able to supply my students with a wide range of reading material.

By providing my students with a wide range of topics, I am hoping that they can each come away with a great read from my classroom at the end of the year.
