My Students

I have an energetic, inquisitive, and enthusiastic group of 26 seven- and eight-year-olds in the inner city of Providence, Rhode Island. My second graders are always eager to come to school and love to read, write, and problem solve in such thoughtful and creative ways! My students are so appreciative of each other and all that we do every day. They are culturally diverse and enjoy sharing their own unique experiences with the class.

Many of my students have special needs and also special talents, so we learn so much from each other.

My school is working hard to build community among families and staff, and we have a safe, respectful environment.

My Project

It would be so wonderful and make such an impact on my students if they could have these books to read at home while we are transitioning to distance learning. The books address topics such as social justice, social emotional learning, and diversity. The libraries are not open right now, and although they have access to Chromebooks and a digital library, there is nothing like a really beautifully created book with a meaningful topic in the hands of an eager reader. My students deserve to have actual books to read and I believe their families will truly appreciate them as well. Thank you so much for taking the time to read our project and find out more about our classroom. Any help at all is greatly appreciated.
