My Students

Students in the "highest poverty" category, often do not have opportunities to follow their dreams. I am all about making the impossible possible and their dreams for the future an obtainable reality. My students come from countries around the world. They have traveled from Africa, Asia, South America, and across North America, as children of refugees and families that move frequently, due to low-income earning ability. The unique and difficult experiences of my students are what make my students some of the most powerful and determined young minds you could ever hope to meet.

My students have experienced adversity.

In our classroom, we rise above it. My students are resilient and brilliant. They have incredible leadership abilities. They help each other and understand the power of teamwork. We build a classroom community and care for each other. When one student succeeds, they all celebrate the success achieved by their classmate. These bonds are forged with time, shared tribulation, and the universal truth that every single student in our class has enormous potential.

My Project

Our class loves Elephant and Piggie books! When I say love I mean they really REALLY love them with two scoops of ice cream and a cherry on top! They are one of the most sought after books during silent reading time. The Elephant and Piggie book bin is always out. This is why I want to deliver to our amazing emergent first grade readers a multi-copy library of MORE Elephant and Piggie books!

This project includes multiple copies to encourage partner reading - so students can share the joy of reading favorite books together and practice talking about books they love.

Students will benefit from this book project through literacy, listening and speaking practice, and social emotional skill building working together. Our class is more than 50% ESL students, and the speaking and listening practice with their friends will be so valuable. I can’t wait for this project to get funded, because I just KNOW how thrilled these 1st graders will be when they open a giant box full of their favorite books, new titles they have never read, and copies to share reading with a friend.
