My next generation learners are eager to walk into the classroom, put their "thinking caps" on and discover something new. Whether it be a brand new world through reading or investigating the odds of the world. Many have a love for technology and up and coming innovations. These creative students come from various homes and backgrounds.I am lucky enough to teach at a Title 1 school which serves Pre-K-5 with an excellent special education and behavior classroom. All of our students are qualified for free lunch and breakfast.
As a teacher in a low income/high poverty school district, my students face unique challenges each day.
I find it is my job to meet the needs of all my students by supporting them in education through meaningful learning and hands on opportunities.
A goof reader becomes a good writer, a good writer becomes a good reader. In the ever revolving world of literacy, all forms go hand in hand. My students do not always have access to quality and exceptional condition books to read in class or to take home and read with their family. The more books my students have at hand, the more they can learn about other cultures, social awareness and development, or the world around them.
By increasing my classroom library, my under privileged students can begin closing the learning gap.
With more titles to choose from I have a higher chance of engaging students in the world of reading. Students can fall in love with a new place or adventure they may not otherwise have the chance to experience. From there, we can establish an attitude of life long learning.
