My Students

My students are the ones that are often overlooked, but they have so much love for learning and a drive to defy the odds. As this is my first year, I cannot say too much about them besides the fact that they are awesome and are going to need so many things to help them be the best they can be.

The following is a set of books that I believe they could benefit from, as well as some materials that I may not get elsewhere.

My Project

The pencil sharpener and books will allow my students to have materials that may seem simple, but are needed for my kids to have the education that they need to succeed. Most important are the books.

Please consider helping my students expand their classroom library.

My students deserve the best, and this is what I want to provide to them. Having an array of books, that allow my students to see themselves in the books they read, and expand their book club favorites. I cannot do it without your help, so please consider contributing.

Ms. McCartney
Grades 6-8
Nearly all students from low‑income households
