My Students

Students show a lot of determination to find a way to solve problems. The problems could be in math, reading, lunch, art, or life. As an educator, I strive to give my students the skills and materials needed to solve the problems they encounter. I have a very dynamic group of students. They have a love for learning and a willingness to attempt new pursuits.

Through DonorsChoose.org, with the help of all the amazing donors, students are able to have experiences where they learn new skills or master old ones.

When students are done with a specified task, they want to find new ways to express their learning. As a project is funded it shows students that people are invested in their success. Using the materials requested allows students to find another way to show their learning/mastery with items that might not have been available otherwise.

My Project

Have you ever experienced full on belly laughs from reading a book? The kind where it escapes you and there is nothing you can do about it. It doesn’t matter that people are giving you a look. You are completely engrossed in the story and are not worried about others. Dav Pilkey’s books have that power. The entertainment factor is spot on in the titles I am looking to get in the hands of my reluctant readers.

One of my greatest goals as an educator is to show students the power opening a book can give them.

Dog Man and Captain Underpants are a must to get kids hooked on reading. The enjoyment they bring out of students has them coming back for more.

A book can show them new worlds, the possibilities around them, and give them a sense of belonging. One of the most precious things to see as an educator is when a former reluctant reader finds enjoyment in books. I sincerely believe that Dav Pilkey’s books do that for children.
