My Students

My students all come from the poorest neighborhoods in the city of Boston. My third graders are the sweetest and hardest working children! They love to learn, read, and write. They make me proud every day!

My classroom is an ESL classroom, where all my students speak other languages at home.

They are all new immigrants to the United States and many of them have had limited or interrupted schooling in their home countries. They enjoy coming to school each day to learn English and make friends.

My Project

Who doesn't like to read brand new books about exciting inventions, sports heroes, or fictional characters that make us use our imaginations?

Help support my classroom by providing us with new and exciting chapter books that will leave my students wanting to read more!

I know that adding some new titles, authors, and genres to my classroom library will only strengthen my students' desires to keep their eyes on text! Especially when their favorite books come in sets where they can read one amazing book and move on to another similar one. The smell of a new book...nothing can compare!
