My Students

During these difficult times, my students are doing their best to continue their learning from home. We left the classroom suddenly and I would like my wonderful students to be able to keep up their studies at home with books we can read together and discuss.

My Project

I want to get physical books into the hands of my fantastic students so that they can do a book study with me while we are learning remotely.

This project would help all students have access to books and have more materials at home to support their reading.

My class loves to read and they could use more books. These are books that I was going to share with my class in the classroom and I know they would be so excited for me to drop off and bring them books that they can study and then keep at their homes.
