My Students

Hello! We are a 7th-grade classroom in a low-income neighborhood in Chicago, IL. We are in the Dual Language program, learning in English and Spanish. Despite many obstacles they may face, my students love challenges. As a teacher, I have great expectations for them and if they continue working hard, all their dreams are going to become true.

They do their best at all times but you can tell, it is hard to be engaged in a book when it is just not that interesting.

I go to book sales to fill our classrooms, but it doesn't come close to the demand for our student's needs. Our goal is to get as many new and interesting books in the hands of our students.

My Project

These books will continue to enhance the print-rich classroom that I strive to create. It is really important for them to read books in their mother tongue as well as in the English language to reach their full potential. My classroom library is a place that my students really enjoy - I read on the carpet to them, they complete work there, and they read independently! Every student book that is placed in my library is treated with love and care, and they are thankful for the opportunities to read. All of these books have been chosen with my students in mind.
