My Students

Each morning when my students enter the classroom, they begin the morning engaging in reading while waiting for the announcements to begin.

My students are a diverse group of students.

They all have strengths and weaknesses, and as a class we work to improve in all areas. Despite my students' financial needs, they come to school daily, ready to learn. It is my desire for them to go far in life and to never stop learning.

My Project

Have you ever gone to the shelf of a library and seen NOTHING that interests you? This is something I never want my students to experience. It is my desire to provide students with books they love and that they will be excited to read. The books I am requesting are books that students LOVE to read.

These books would make a world of difference in my classroom.

It would provide my class with two sets of their favorite books. These books are ones the students find fun and engaging.
