My Students

I have an amazing group of scholars. My scholars are excited and eager to read each and everyday. I have scholars who ask to read when they're finished with assignment. I want my students to continue to stay fired up about reading, so I want to make sure that they have the tools necessary.

My scholars are a group of individuals who are eager to learn and grow.

Every day my scholars repeat the phrase " I deserve the best education." My scholars work hard every day to prove how bad they want the education they are receiving. The scholars in my classroom are striving everyday to be better leaders and better students. They are our future and I believe that with their hard-work and determination they have no limit to what they will achieve.

My Project

With these resources that my scholars will receive we will be able to read higher level text as a class and increase the rigor. Also, with the thesauruses my scholars will have an opportunity to explore vocabulary in a different way. Along side that, with the new books like Diary of a Wimpy Kid and Kid's Almanac my scholars will get a chance to read text that interest them which will hopefully keep the fire burning that they already have for reading.

These donations will do amazing things in my classroom.

It will give my scholars opportunities to learn in new ways. These donations will help my scholars increase their reading levels. The ability to read and understand higher level text is important. I want to do everything that I can to insure that ALL of my scholars get what they need to prepare them for their best future.
