My Students

My classroom is full of engaged and curious middle schoolers who love discussion and pushing the educational boundaries. They love being able to discuss books, plays, short stories and poetry, all the while participating in debates and constructively critiquing one another. Through this process, my students have learned the value of active discussion and engagement with others. We still have a lot to learn, but their love of learning and engagement with text has pushed me to seek help in order to afford new and exciting books for my students to continue their curiosity through literature.

My Project

My students LOVE being able to pick and choose which books they read during independent time. We hold competitions and fun conversation games about their books and it really gets them activity thinking about literature! These new graphic novels and other assorted books will help both my struggling and accelerated readers when it comes time for independent reading. I want my students to be confident with themselves as readers, and the only way to do so is through exposure to new and exciting material! With these new books, my students will be able to uncover more about themselves as students than they could before!
