My Students

Have you ever been part of a group that just made all your problems disappear? That is what our dance team does. Your donation will help my students excel at what they love to do.

My students range from 9th-12th grade.

They all have a hard life but when they come to dance it's like a whole different world. Dancing to them is oxygen, it's how they get rid of stress and anger. This is their safe family, their home twice a week after school for three hours.

My Project

With the school year halfway over I am wanting to renew my students' love for reading by introducing a class novel "Nil" and two new graphic novels that are non-fiction. The more they read the more their reading level will increase. The state test is in May and many of my students are behind in reading. I want to pique their interest in wanting to read new looks by giving them three new choices. My students are loving graphic novels because they don't seem too intimating. The class novel will bring everyone together to enjoy a new book and be able to discuss it as we go on.
