My Students

Most educators feel their classroom of students are the best and greatest. Although I can't argue with their opinions, I happen to think that I have the best and greatest students on this planet. There isn't a day that I don't look forward to seeing their faces and seeing them develop in knowledge and wisdom before my eyes. I may be their teacher, but they teach me so many lessons each day as well. Currently, I am educating a set of curious, friendly, and resilient fourth grade students that are constantly excited about learning.

My students attend a Title I school located in the South Bronx in which 30% live in shelters.

Despite the obstacles they face on a daily basis, they are always eager to learn and never give up hope. As their teacher, I buy the majority of the materials they need to help them achieve their academic goals out of my own pocket because I want to provide them with the opportunities to learn and experience things they never imagined. I want to instill the joy that learning can bring regardless of the challenges within their own lives.

My Project

The materials I am requesting are a variety of high-interest books at various reading levels for my students. My students need books to read in our classroom library. They will be able to increase their reading skills and levels. More books in my classroom will provide the opportunities for my students to borrow books to read at home. Increasing the number of books within our classroom will give my students the chance to feel successful at reading independently when they discover books they love and adore.

Your donations will help my students have a well-stocked classroom library, with a variety of books they can select from for the entire school year.

I really hope you decide to donate. As my students' love of reading grows as well as their reading muscles, so will their love of learning, which is priceless. Every dollar helps!
