My Students

Hello all! I’m a second year sixth grade English teacher at PLES. We are a Title I public school in Phoenix, Arizona. My kiddos love to read, and I try to expose them to as many books as I can, but as a new teacher my library is kinda sad. I would love to raise money for a proper classroom library so my kiddos can go on literary adventures.

My Project

Currently I am a second year teacher at PLES, which is a Title I school. I’ve done the best I can to find cheap books, and taken any hand me downs I’ve been offered but I’d love to give my kiddos a great classroom library. Most of the books I have are out of date. I would like to provide them an amazing library so they learn to love reading as much as I do. Please help me give the sweetest kids in the world the opportunity to love books!
