My Students

I have the best students in the world! My school is located in a high-needs community. Most of my students receive free breakfast and lunch. My wonderful students come to school with smiles on their faces, ready to learn.

Although they struggle with extreme home situations, my students often want someone to guide them into learning.

They are sweet and beautiful children who want to have fun and learn in a peaceful, fun classroom. I want to make that available for them!

My Project

When we start something new, we always look for that one thing that is familiar. Something that will make us feel at ease.

I want my students to pick a book because they enjoy as well as have a love of reading.

I want them to be inspired by the new selection and maybe understand that this story is similar to how they feel or look. I hope that the books will get them excited about reading, and make them understand their feelings. I would love for my students to find that familiar book that gives them comfort while encouraging them to read. I want my students to have and feel connected to the books they are reading.

Thank you for reading my proposal and supporting our students.
