My Students

My educational journey has given me the opportunity to teach at a Title I school; students from low-income families. No matter the challenges at home, my students come to class filled with enthusiasm toward learning.

They are beacons of light, and I want them to continue to illuminate their paths.

I want my students to have the opportunity to explore various resources without limitations so that they can achieve their goals. “The beautiful thing about learning is that nobody can take it away from you.”—B.B. King

My Project

These books will help my students become better readers. The various levels and genres will allow them to transport themselves into places and characters at arms reach. It is through books that my students can feel that they too can do and become anything they want in life.

These books will also cultivate imaginative and divergent thinking.

The diverse books will allow my students to choose topics that interest them. Reading books will increase their fluency and the individual levels will increase their reading comprehension. This project will help my students become independent readers and improve skills that will continue onto other grade levels and life skills.
