My Students

I am blessed to teach at unique and innovative elementary school. My students are diverse, dynamic, clever and very curious, which makes them natural high achievers.

Having a natural hunger to learn, my students never stop asking questions and I love that about them.

They are truly an incredible group, and I want to provide the best learning opportunities to support their growth.

"But I've already read all of those books." It's disappointing to tell a first grader, who is excited to read, that you are out of books at his/her level. I want to help to keep kids excited about new titles and eager to keep reading.

My Project

These books will update my classroom library, which is a place my students really enjoy. All of these books have been chosen with my students in mind; students will be able to choose books to enjoy during independent reading time.

My students will be able to choose from a variety of books that will allow them to read independently at their own level and also pick books that engage their interest.

My students already have shown an astonishing interest in independent reading, which drives their reading success. This project will enrich their experiences with the renewed and updated favorite books.
