My Students

Our students come from very diverse backgrounds. Blue collar, white collar... farmers and CEOs... our community hosts a wide range of experiences and incomes. Located in a township without a post office, our school struggles to make ends meet at times. We aren't Title I but could be. We have a very strong community presence in our school, which helps, but constant budget cuts mean less money.

Even with these obstacles, our community is eager to see their children achieve a higher level of academic success than previous generations.

In today's world, being literate in technology is an essential skill. We hope to prepare and enrich our students for such a tech-based world.

My Project

Over the next couple of months, my students will be using these books to delve into the world of fiction and nonfiction stories to explore great stories and worlds unknown.

Through books like 'The Bear and the Piano", "Lion Lessons" and "Quit Calling me a Monster!" my students will learn life lessons through beautifully written stories that intrigue the imagination and encourage them to dream big.

The students also enjoy nonfiction stories such as "Giant Squid", and Water is Water". Through these books and more, the students will learn about animals that live in the deep ocean as well as the water cycle! Many of the books have tie is to the arts and STEAM activities. This project will broaden their horizons and encourage them to make connections from books to the real world around them.

Help my students get inspired to read, create, and so much more by supporting this project!
