My Students

The pandemic has hit us unlike anything that we've ever seen. Schools, businesses, and parks have all closed down leaving children nowhere to go to have fun, especially in urban areas. With school being closed, my students are stuck at home with nothing to read.

I teach at a Title I school in Knoxville, TN.

We have around 100 kindergartners who are almost all free or reduced lunch. The neighborhood loves their teachers, so let us show them a little love back.

My Project

English and Spanish are the most commonly used languages at my school. The problem is that our curriculum only uses books written in English. Unfortunately, this leaves out my ELL students during whole/small group instruction.

These materials will make a tremendous difference in the lives of my students because they will teach them how to read both English and Spanish!

Not only will the students learn both English and Spanish, but their parents will too! With your help, we can help close the language barrier between families in my community by providing them with bilingual books. We are all in this together.
