My Students

My students are remarkable and hard-working. We work together in a Title I school to meet and exceed grade-level academic performance. My students come from many different backgrounds with many different life experiences. We incorporate the rich cultures of each student and their families into our classroom and our learning. My students persevere through challenges they face from circumstances out of their control. Some of these circumstances are due to difficulty accessing resources due to socioeconomic situations that are out of their control.

No matter the challenges my students face, we work together to lift, encourage, and support one another to live our best lives and to achieve each goal we set for ourselves.

I am proud of my remarkable students and I am proud to be their teacher.

My Project

This classroom library will draw from diverse authors, present diverse topics, and span a wide range of reading levels. Pulling in fiction and nonfiction, popular series and lesser known works, and spanning a range of serious and lighter topics, this library will engage students of all backgrounds and abilities.

Reading is fundamental to student success, but student interest in reading is contingent on them being drawn to the books available in their classroom.

My current library, which I have developed with my own funds over the years, is still limited. By diversifying my classroom library, it will be more likely that each student will be able to find a book that speaks to them and make them eager to read it. These diverse books for diverse learners will help me create a vibrant community of readers.
