My Project

I teach in a Title I school in a very low-income part of Houston. The majority of my students are first generation English Learners. I really enjoy that all year long they have been improving in their English reading ability. It is so fun to see the light bulbs click on.

It would be great to be able to give my students books as their 'End of the Year' gifts to read at home so they (and their families) can learn, practice and read English better.

I personally love reading, and it would make my heart so happy knowing they can read their own books at home this summer.
