My Students

Our community school is very diverse where many backgrounds and languages are represented. For most of our students, English is not the primary language. As a result, my students face challenges both in and out of the classroom. Despite the challenges they face on an everyday basis, I am always looking to provide my students with meaningful learning experiences.

My students show up to school excited and ready to learn!

It is my goal to help my students not only reach the next reading level, but to keep my students motivated to learn.

My Project

Books allow us to dive into worlds unknown. They open doors to countries we will never visit and teach us more than what we see daily. These books will allow my students to take a step in someone else's shoes and see why it is so important to have tolerance and understanding toward each other

My students need to understand how important it is to value and respect each other and how diversity strengthens our communities.

In addition, with the books that I am requesting to add to our classroom library, my students will be able to see themselves and their cultures reflected in the books they read. I want to provide my students with opportunities to experience the world and these books will do just that!
