My Students

The students I see daily have different backgrounds, many coming from low-income households. They can connect with each other through what they are reading and love having free choice of what they get to read. I know they would be thrilled to get more books that they can relate to.

I am passionate about reading and love to help my students find a book that ignites their love of reading, taking them places they may never otherwise get to go.

I love seeing them get excited about what they are reading and spreading that love of reading to their peers.

My Project

I would love to bring these new titles into my classroom library and possibly use some for literature circles where they can participate in rich conversation about what they are reading with their peers. Requested titles include Blended, Echo, Piecing Me Together, When I Was the Greatest, and the Janitors Series boxed set.

Having these high interest titles in my classrooms will definitely help in getting my reluctant readers to connect to a character and develop a life long love of reading, which will lead to further success in all areas of their education.

If you decide to support my project, you will be touching the lives of many students each year through literature and helping to mold them into life long learners.
