I am a teacher to a group of AMAZING scholars in a rural section of Arizona. When my kids walk into our classroom every day, they come in ready to learn. They are excited to be at school and to be around caring adults. We are truly like a family.
I teach at a Title I school in Arizona where 90 percent of our students receive free breakfast and lunch.
Many of my students receive backpack food on the weekend, and our school also runs a food pantry for our families. Despite so many hardships, my students are eager to learn and do their best. They want to be in school because they want to learn all they can so they can be successful one day.
Our students come to school ready to learn each day despite challenges they face at home. They are exceptional scholars. These books will give my students exciting stories to read and engage them in various forms of texts to further their learning and foster a love for reading. We have been working hard to teach our students about a variety of stories to peak their interest and help them find books they will love. Having options in my classroom will help students to feel confident in choosing books that are best for them, interest them, and keep them engaged in reading and learning.
