My Students

Many of my students are English Language Learners from low income families that come from diverse backgrounds. The school I work at is classified as Title I, meaning that I am working to meet the needs of at-risk and low-income students. They are kids with hopes and dreams of making their lives better and bettering the future of their families.

Despite their challenges, I hold my students to high expectations and challenge them to reach their fullest potential.

It is wonderful to see their remarkable progress throughout the year. My classroom reaches an array of abilities including advanced academics, special education and general education students. These students will one day change the world, and I cannot wait to see how far they go!

My Project

As a teacher, one of my most important jobs is to help students learn and grow into the outstanding individuals I know they can be. I can think of no better series to help grow their love of reading than with Harry Potter, starting from the beginning with The Sorcerer's Stone. My students also need a new shelf to organize their group projects, math games and calculators as well as three missing earbuds for students to be able to access online math activities.

Help my students enter the world of magic and discover their love of reading with Hogwarts!

The illustrated copies will assist my students who struggle with the English language as the detailed drawings coincide with the reading. The students will explore important themes such as friendship, accepting differences, and good vs. evil to name a few as they read through the series. Students will also get warped into the lives of students who are also at the middle school level, experience the same daily strife that they do!
