My Students

The students at our school are located in Northeastern Nash County North Carolina. Although we are a low preforming school our students are creative and outgoing. The students are in a low-income rural area of North Carolina. Our school has amazing support from our families and participation in activities often exceeds expectations. Our students are special because they have awesome ideas and dreams that amaze us as their educators. We teach our students to dream big and to excel at all they put their minds to.

My Project

With these books my students will be able to see beyond what limits them and dive into books not currently available to them. They will also be able to dive into a realistic fiction novel with Wildfire. Finally that can enjoy a heartwarming journey with a fox named Pax.

My students will learn how to explore reading genres that they have never considered.

These books will expand my students thinking and will help them grow. The selection of books will allow me to provide my students with a wide range of books they may never have thought of ever reading.
