My Students

Survivors, that's what we are!

In August, 2017, our small community was devastated by Hurricane Harvey.

Our school suffered water damage and we lost furniture and materials.

Six months later, we still aren't in our classrooms at our elementary. I have the sweetest, most resilient group of students who have learned to do school outside of a normal classroom. We are still learning, every day, despite our circumstances! Our students have been very positive and are looking forward to a normal school year, soon.

My Project

We LOVE to read, and first grade is where the reading takes off! In our classroom, we do small group guided reading, and I work with students on their reading level. Doing guided reading, I'm able to move students along and increase their reading level. This set of readers will help build my library of guided readers. Your generous donation and act of kindness will impact our community for years to come. We are thankful for you!

"The more that you read, the more things you will know.

The more that you learn, the more places you'll go." -Dr. Seuss
