My Students

I teach 20 wonderful first graders. We use technology throughout the day and the kids love it!! We are a rural school with very little diversity. Our school is a loving community with support from the community and parents.

We love to participate in STEAM and Breakout EDU.

We also love our reading time. We love all kinds of books, but we need more culturally diverse books and we need comfy places to work and read. We hope you can help us expand our love or reading and learning!

My Project

I would love to fill out class library with books to help grow students’ thinking and their minds. The path to learning begins with a story and classroom libraries should be filled with all kinds of genres and books that inspire students.

We need more books so please consider helping us grow our library and our growth mindset!

The books we have are wonderful but we always need more. Our classroom would appreciate any bit of help that you can give us. We promise to use these books and learn from them. Our goal is to become great learners and students.
