My Students

This is my first year teaching at a new school. I work in a small, urban school district. I am one of the school's reading teachers and I teach students in grades 6-8.

Reading is such an important way for students to gain the needed skills to be 21st century learners.

Many of my students come to my class wanting to read! I hope to inspire my students to have a life long love and excitement for reading and learning!

My Project

These bean bag chairs will help my students to fall in love with reading. Students need to see reading as something they can enjoy. I want to allow my students to read around my classroom--a space free from any distraction. I want my classroom book nook to be an inviting space where my students can enjoy independent reading every day.

With these bean bag chairs, my students will be able to be comfortable while they read.

I want to encourage all students to read each day in my classroom. This is the best way for my students to grow as readers.
