My Students

We are a Title I school district in a small East Texas community. Each of our classes consists of approximately 20 adorable fourth graders who come from all different backgrounds.

My students are highly motivated and love to be challenged.

All of my students are a very important part of the classroom. They do a tremendous job in supporting and encouraging their peers whenever needed. They make me proud to be their teacher! I can't wait to see their smiling faces every morning!

My Project

My students are from a small East Texas Title I school. They come from various backgrounds and upbringings. I believe books are a way to touch the lives of my students.

The perfect books can teach our kids so many good things.

We need more kindness and empathy in our world today. These books are the perfect ones to help reach our kids' hearts.

Please help me bring these books into my classroom so that my kids can make a better tomorrow. We need to make our world a better place and it starts with our kids. They are our future.
