My Students

My students come from one of the neediest populations of our city in Massachusetts.

Many of the school's children come from the three low-income housing developments and a homeless shelter that surround the school.

In 2002 our school was labeled underperforming. However, since then, due to the hard work and dedication of administration, faculty, and students, the school has made tremendous growth and is no longer underperforming!

Despite the challenges my students face, they come to school ready to learn.

My Project

Imagine coming to school and having a special place where you can comfortable read and truly fall into a great book! This is what I am trying to create in my classroom! Thanks to many donors I have a leveled reading cart for my students, now I'm trying to create a reading area with a nice rug and comfortable chairs.

My hope is to create a welcoming area where even my most reluctant readers will want to read!

The rug and beanbags will certainly make this hope a reality and help increase my students fluency, vocabulary, and comprehension! Thank you!
