My Students

My students are from low socioeconomic backgrounds and have limited resources to use both in and out of school. At the same time, my class is full of eager learners who enjoy experiencing new opportunities and using new technology in order to learn.

My students are "book worms," mathematicians, and explorers to the fullest and would love to expand their knowledge of a variety of topics.

They have developed into young boys and girls who would soar and succeed to their full potential if only given the proper resources!

My Project

My students come from a low socio-economic area and have limited support in regards to reading good books! I strongly feel that knowledge is power, and that reading can help my students obtain this 'power'.

As stated by George Bernard Shaw, '“Make it a rule never to give a child a book you would not read yourself.” Every single child throughout the world should have access and opportunities to read and enjoy books that THEY enjoy - rather than reading books that are just available to them.

I want my students' imaginations to grow and soar. They are faced with daily struggles, but having a good book to read in a cozy classroom can be a great escape!
