My Students

The students at my school come from Hispanic, Eastern European, Asian, and African-American background. Fifty percent of my students are considered low-income, thus qualify for the free lunch program. They attend a public school in the third largest district in the country, Chicago. Unfortunately, my school district has been experiencing budget cuts, which affects every school's supply and resource budgets. Regardless, my students are amazing; they make the best with what little we have and shine everyday despite this set back.

My Project

My students have had a great time learning Spanish, however, we need Spanish novels to read at our school.

We have dedicated a lot of time and energy towards studying Spanish words and phrases, and grammar but we need more novels to allow us to read in Spanish.

I am very eager to acquire 23 copies of "El Principito (The Little Prince)" to provide each of my students with their own copy of the book to borrow and take home to read.

Your help will make it possible for my students to put their reading comprehension skills to the test and READ. This gift would not only get their minds going, but push them to become life long readers.
