My Students

I work at a Title One school, where a high percentage of my students come from low income families. The students always show up with a smile and ready to get to work!

I teach twenty-five students ranging in abilities like special education and regular education!

They love to read and they love to learn and grow! I work on a team of three in third grade!

My Project

These books will give my students a chance to continue their love of reading at home with their family members. They will be able to keep these books and it will foster their love for reading.

My students will be able to keep these books which is an opportunity they might not have had before.

It will also let my students be able to get a wide variety of text, both fiction and nonfiction books. My students love STEAM and fiction books. This will allow them to continue to grow and learn as readers.
