My Students

The area I am teaching is low income and the school itself is trying to build itself up regarding scores and community. I don’t get to meet my students for another month but I want them to understand I love each one of them already. I understand that I am entering a school where violence is a common act at home and in the neighborhoods. I am hoping to establish a well balanced community among my students and ensure a safe and engaging place for them to to come to every day.

My Project

These books will be accessible for all of my students to not only read in class, but also to take home and read. I want my students to love learning so I've added books of all different kinds. I intend to continue adding, but, this will allow me to begin a rich reading environment for my students.

I am excited to have different genres for the kids to explore, especially in a school where the children are surrounded by violence and crime in their neighborhoods.

I want the children to have worlds to escape to and a place to allow their imagination to grow, that is something I very much would love to have in my classroom.

Grades 3-5
Nearly all students from low‑income households
