My Students

My students are very important to me! They are creative, thoughtful, and motivated individuals. My students come to school ready to learn something new every day.

I believe that my students should have all the materials and tools necessary to help them be successful learners.

I have taught in Title 1 schools for the past three years. My students don't always have the resources needed in a classroom. I am hoping this project will help get them some of those resources.

My Project

My students love reading new books! When selecting these titles, I made sure to keep my student's interests in mind. These books will allow them to choose from a variety of genres and topics when reading independently.

My students will have books that are engaging to foster their love of reading.

I have found that my students want to read more when given options of books they actually enjoy. All of these books will help improve my student's reading skills.

We will be sure to take care of our new additions so that future students will benefit from them as well!
