My Students

Do you remember getting hooked on a series of books as a child? Think of the anticipation and excitement you felt waiting for and then finally reading the prized next installment in your favorite series. My students share that excitement and joy of waiting for and then finally devouring the newest books in their favorite series. My students are inquisitive, voracious readers who are craving to discover the newest adventures in their favorite book series.

My students are learning to truly fall in love with reading.

Students at my school are inquisitive, compassionate, and creative. I am the 4th grade teacher at an elementary school in an impoverished urban area.A classroom library is an essential resource for my students. Many of my students do not have access to books at home and rely on our school library to check out high-quality books. There is a buzz about books and an excitement for reading in our school.

My Project

These books will allow my students to be introduced to books of our childhood such as The Magic Tree House series. These books made a difference for our generation and now it's time to give that same love for reading to the next. Books have always had the power to change lives by allowing kids to use their imagination to take them to places that they may never otherwise get to experience.

My students are book-loving, avid readers, and enthusiastic learners.

Many of my students do not have access to books at home and rely on the classroom library to check out high-quality books. I want to give them the opportunity to learn about time periods, animals, and people that they otherwise would never get to experience.
