My Students

I teach in a low-income/high poverty school district. The students in my class come from a variety of homes and families. It is my job to provide my students with experiences that are meaningful and lasting.

My class has the strongest passion for reading and language I have ever seen!

My students have a passion for learning. Our school has a great community and our students are the best around! They are creative, loving, and caring. Students these days learn in many different ways, such as hands-on, reading, worksheets, and table groups. All of these learning styles should be supported in our classroom. I hope to inspire my students at this young age to strive for academic success.

My Project

I am in desperate need of leveled books for my classroom. These books, that I have selected, are books that my students will enjoy and love to read. Some are our favorite author and some are just great leveled books.

My classroom flooded.

Most of my leveled books that I have spent years collecting were soaked. It took us days to dry them out and most are ruined. These new leveled books will provide my students with something to read. Please consider helping my students. Developing a love for reading at a young age can changes the way students feel about school and work for the rest of their lives.
