My Students

I am a teacher in a low-income/high poverty school district. My students are faced with many challenges in and out of the classroom. Knowing where my students come from, I want to give them the best foundation that I can so they can achieve all of their dreams.

My students have a strong desire to learn about all things around them.

They are sweet and caring. They enjoy learning and helping others around them learn. I have truly enjoyed watching my students grow this year.

I want to be able to provide my students with as many learning opportunities as I can. My goal is to encourage students to have a joy for learning. I want them to grow in all aspects so that they will be able to give back to their community.

My Project

I feel that these chapter books will increase my students' love for reading. As first graders, they enjoy reading chapter books. I have used the chapter books as an extension.

These chapter books will engage them in reading and building those foundation skills.

My students are extremely excited to read Horrible Harry in Room 2B by Susy Kline. My students read these chapter books as partners and complete book projects.

By providing my scholars with a variety of reading materials, I will not only grow their minds but will also provide them with a foundation of open-mindedness which they will one day be able to utilize with their own community.
