My Students

I teach an amazing group of kids who deserve the best. By partnering with DonorsChoose.org and you, my students are provided with the best materials and much more.

Every day, my students work hard to achieve greatness.

They also encourage and support each other in being better as a whole. My students are kind, compassionate, smart, and grateful. They are role models to the younger students and leaders among their peers. My students make me proud every day, and I am grateful to be their teacher.

My Project

My students will spend time reading these books to themselves, with partners and often times take them home to show their parents what books they are reading at school. My students have handpicked all of the books I have requested. Therefore, every book has a special place in at least one child's heart within my class. Some books have several students eagerly waiting its arrival.

The donation of these books will keep the love for reading alive!

My students already have a fire to learn and to better themselves; it's my job to support and help them maintain that love for learning and reading. Your donation will help me achieve this.
