My Students

Jacqueline Kennedy once said, "There are many ways to enlarge your child's world. Love of books is the best of all." Learning to read can be a very daunting task for children who struggle. Children who can establish success in their endeavors will undoubtedly find enjoyment as well.

I am blessed this year to teach 24 positive, hard-working, and energetic students this year!

My students are excited about learning, but struggle with their reading comprehension. Many of my students this year read significantly below grade level and need a little extra push to help them succeed. My students attend a high-poverty school and almost all of them receive free or reduced-price lunch. My students attend a magnetic program at a math, science, and technology school, but basic reading comprehension skills stand in the way of their success.

My Project

These resources will be an essential addition to our classroom. They will provide students with additional individual practice that will help them to build their reading comprehension skills and develop self-confidence and competency with their reading. In developing their skills, reading will also become more enjoyable for them.

Reading skills are essential to success.

My students work hard and want to be successful--they just need a little more help. My students deserve the world. Won't you help me to give it to them?
