My Students

I teach a group of awesome and creative young minds. What these wonderful children come up with constantly amazes me! They love to write, draw, dance and perform daily. The one place that they struggle with the most is reading. For many, reading is their weakness, and they will do everything in their power to avoid it.

I want my students to love reading, want to read and have access to amazing books and comfortable places to enjoy them.

Many of the students in my school come from struggling socioeconomic backgrounds and distracting external environments, and this is a large contributing factor in whether they have academic success or not. Some students will always come out on top, but there are many that need the extra love and support to truly blossom as students and citizens.

My Project

The books that will be added to our classroom library will be cherished by all students. With a constant influx of amazing books, I am constantly trying to add more amazing books that will hook and draw in my reluctant and struggling readers.

If this project is funded, my students will thrive within the environment that I am creating for them.

My students desperately need to have access to new and interesting books, as well as comfortable places to sit and enjoy their books. I look forward to them relaxing on their pillows, rapt attention and enjoying an amazing read-aloud.
