My Students

I fell in love with reading in the second grade. I can remember my teacher reading Astrid Lindgren's Pippi Longstocking to us; it was then that I knew that I was hooked. As a teacher, it has been my goal to instill a love of reading in each and every one of my students. I am not going to exaggerate and say that all of my students love to read. Some of them enjoy reading. Some of them don't. I have found that those that love to read in my class will forego an assignment just to read. Those that don't enjoy reading will do anything to get out of it - these are the kids that I really want to reach. Unfortunately, a lot of these kids don't have access to books or computers outside of school.

I have been teaching for twenty years, and I am finding that it gets harder and harder with each passing year to teach effectively.

The main reason for this is due to a lack of resources. My school is located in a rural, low-income region and funding has been a problem for many years.

My Project

In today’s ever-changing world, diversity is a topic on everyone’s mind. Students are being exposed to diversity more and more. So how do we, as a culture, prepare the next generation to embrace diversity and handle it in a socially responsible and mature way? Well...the classroom is a great place to begin the conversation and to educate students on diversity.

Initiating discussions about tolerance, awareness, and the importance of diversity within the safety of a classroom will provide many benefits for my students both now and in the future.

By donating to our project, my students will learn about diversity through a simple fairy tale, Cinderella. I have requested books that tell the tale of Cinderella from different cultures around the world. I will incorporate these books that I have requested within my Reading lessons throughout the year in order to foster a sense of empathy and awareness, bring about open-mindedness and new perspectives, support mindfulness and tolerance, and allow students to feel unique, yet part of a group.
