My Students

I am a Literacy Coach in a school of around 700 students. The students at my school are amazing!! We have added around 250 new students this year from another school that closed. We have spent time welcoming those students and everyone feels included.

We have a wide range of students at Fox Hills, including a special program for gifted students.

The students come from a wide range of backgrounds with 51% on free or reduced lunch. The students at Fox Hills are a bunch of eager readers!

My Project

My project is Battle of the Books. This program supports all students in my school. These books will be used for students to read. Battle of the Books is a great program that definitely encourages students to read. After reading all the books during the school year, we have a "battle" in the spring. This gives students the opportunity to test their reading comprehension against other students as they answer questions about the books.

My whole goal is to get more books into the hands of students.

As we move into an unusual school year, I want to have books for students to take home and read, and also books that can be sent to my distance learners. These books will be provided to all children in the school to have a book to read!
