My Students

I am very excited to be teaching at a new school this year. I will be the cultural arts teacher. As shown in my school info, nearly all students come from a low-income family. I have learned that low income does not speak of the quality of students. I have some very intelligent, very eager to learn students. Across the nation, schools are struggling to provide resources the students need due to state and federal budget cuts. My students deserve the best, and I am their advocate to make sure they get the best. We are making huge strides to improve in all aspects and the students deserve to have new books, new pieces of technology, and new life experiences to further help them succeed in school and life.

My Project

We have a 100% focused goal on literacy this year. Our school is classified as title I which means 75% or more receive free and reduced lunch. Our students are amazing. Our school library is not at it’s best. We have many new teachers that have yet to fully build their classroom libraries. These things make it hard to put books in the student’s hands. After much brainstorming, I came up with birthday books. My original plan was to do a project for a bunch of books and let the students pick one from the shelf for their birthday. I changed my mind on that because I want them to want to read the books they receive and have pride in it, so I decided to ask for 320 birthday coupons from Scholastic. These coupons are for $5 each. The students will receive them on their birthday and I will place the order. The best part is they get to choose the book and most likely with Scholastic Book Club prices, they will get more than one. This will put books in their hands and homes. I’m super excited about this and I hope to see this project come to life!
