My Students

My kids are amazing! I am at an inner city Charter School that is 100% Somali and English Language Learners. These students come to school with a bright attitude but limited resources. Many are New Comers to the United States. I would love to be able to provide them with more supplies that could help benefit their learning.

My students have a high drive to learn however face struggles that most students don’t have to being 100% low income at a Title 1 school.

Our school has been open for its 2nd year and is striving to give all of our students their best possible chances for an amazing education. Many factors play a part in making this happen such as funding for supplies and resources that either the student or school is unable to provide for them. Although I don’t mind spending money out of pocket for my students, there is still no way to be able to provide them with many of the other opportunities other high income students are fortunate to have with out help from others in the community.

My Project

Our classroom library needs to be organized. My students need a place in which they can have the classroom library organized in such a way that the books can be leveled according to their reading abilities.

My students will be more motivated to read independently when they can feel successful reading books at their level.

This book cart will make it more likely for the students to grab “just right books” and give them opportunities to challenge themselves further when ready to go to the next reading level.

I can’t wait to get my classroom running smoother when I can get this item reading system in place.
