My Students

I am a third grade teacher in Camden, New Jersey. My students are enthusiastic about learning and are excited to read many books this year. My students are eager and enthusiastic learners who love using hands-on materials and technology to learn. My students have a deep passion for reading and literacy whether it is independent, in groups, or as a full class. I want to give them every opportunity to read, listen, and explore the books that they need and want.

My Project

Please help my students add to our classroom library with a variety of different books on their specific reading level. My students devour their current books, but soon get bored with reading the same book over and over again.

With your donation, my students will be intrigued with new and interesting stories that they can enjoy independently.

Each book will give a chance for my students to get lost in another world and will help enhance their imagination and knowledge of vocabulary.

These collection of stories are used to read at school and at home in order for students to instill their reading skills and habits.
