My Students

"Hi there! Do you want to help to instill a lifelong love of reading and a passion for books in children?

Well, it's one of the reasons that I went into teaching!

And now nine years later, I am amazed at how excited my students are when we learn about new authors or when I have new books to add to our library. You could be a part of that excitement! With your generous donation. My students will enjoy leveled readers that not only will engage them, but will also be at their appropriate reading level, which is crucial for reading success. I teach reading to 22 bright and beautiful middle school girls in a high need area of New York City. Most of my students receive free or reduced lunch and are so eager to learn every day.

My Project

Unfortunately, my classroom library does not meet the needs of my very excited bookworms. I can often be found at the public library three or four nights a week, checking out extra books for my students. A leveled library filled with high interest and engaging texts is especially important in middle school because this is the age when children become turned off by reading. With this donation, my students will be ensured best practices for reading instruction and will be well on their way to reading success!

You will not only be helping my students this year, but for all the years and readers to come.

This collection of books will become a treasured part of our classroom library. Thank you so much for your support! It is greatly appreciated!
