My Students

My school is in the Bronx, NY. I work in an elementary school that has over five hundred students. Normal classroom size is thirty-two students. I work with students from all backgrounds and my students are really sweet. I am a special education teacher and I work with students with many learning disabilities. My school has almost all students living in poverty. Most students get free breakfast and lunch at school and most families don’t have the means to provide for their basic needs. Most students come from families where English is their second language and most of their parents don’t speak English. Getting students to bring in a pencil everyday seems like a simple task, but most students come unprepared, without one. Most of my students in my classroom are reading at or below third grade reading level, some reading at a first grade level. We are in need of many supplies for our classroom. Thank-you for your support!

My Project

We need high-interest books in our classroom for our students to read. Many of our books are old and outdated. Many are ripped and damaged. My hope is that these books will help them get interested in reading. They like to read fiction fantasy books with robots, cartoons, animals, princesses, and Minecraft to name a few. Many of my students are reading below grade level for third grade and many students don’t have books at home to read. These books would be used for the classroom as well as for students to borrow to take home and read for homework These books are popular titles with my students that they often love to borrow from our school library. I would love to now incorporate these titles into our classroom library so they can read their favorite books when they have free time. Titles that I am requesting for my students are Dork Diaries, Junie B. Jones, Little Legends, Flat Stanley, Stick Dog, and Owl Diaries. They absolutely will be thrilled if we can have their favorite authors as part of our daily reading. Thank you for your support!
