My Students

Hello and thank you for reading! My name is Anjali and I will be teaching in West Contra Costa School District. I will have approximately 30 third graders and I want to do everything I can do give them the absolute most in the year they are with me.

As a WCCUSD alum myself, I have a deeper understanding of the struggles and hurdles many of these kids have to face in order to keep up with their peers from more well off backgrounds and I want to dedicate myself for giving them the best I can.

It is my goal to enrich their learning experience and get them excited to learn. I hope to motivate them to become life long learners and support them with the tools they need to be successful!

Thank you in advance for your consideration! Your donations will be greatly appreciated, not only by me but by our entire community, because when you uplift one child, it affects their entire family!

My Project

I want to help my students become lifelong readers and that means collecting a variety of high level books for my students to choose from! These books will be in a variety of different genres, topics, reading levels and abilities. That's where I need your help!

I have been doing a lot of research to collect and find appropriate and meaningful books to create a library where every child can find a book they love!

Thank you in advance for your contribution! I promise you are making a difference. By helping me create life long readers, these students will be much more successful in their future endeavors and on their journey towards developing literacy.
