My Students

I work at an inclusive school, where my students come from diverse and varied backgrounds, and come from long distances to be a part of this amazing environment. Their curious minds are supported through a safe and loving atmosphere, allowing them to thrive.

We serve all students regardless of their needs and levels within our community and our students learn in different ways.

Our students are taught that they can succeed no matter what their learning or physical needs are.

My Project

My classroom needs some bean bags and alternative seating to help engage and encourage my third graders to read more! It is important for my students to get these materials because helping them develop a joy for reading is pivotal for their success as they grow.

By adding bean bag chairs in the library, my students will be able to spend more time reading in the library and build their literacy.

Third grade is the first year my students are expected to read to learn. Reinforcing the joy of reading through comfortable library seating will foster that value and of reading growth in other academic areas.
