My Students

Remember being read to when you were a student? Remember the catchy phrase “Hooked on Phonics”? Well, I want my students to be “Hooked on Fridays”. I will be teaching 10th grade students from low socioeconomic backgrounds. My students are excited about First Chapter Friday’s. They want to read relevant books with topics they are facing each day! My students are eager to start reading! I am hoping to bring my passion for reading to my students. With your help, I want my students to be Hooked on Fridays! Students will be excited to read new books which are relevant to their everyday lives!

My Project

I hope to make a difference in my student's motivation to read. By reading the first chapter of a different book on Friday, I hope my students become exciting about reading.

High school students have lost their love of reading, help me to win them over!

I want to give them the option to choose something new and exciting! Many of these students have not picked up a book since before middle school. It is important to me to instill the love of reading again for these kids!

Every Friday, I will read aloud a chapter from a new book. Hopefully, this book will spark a light in someone and they will check the book out!
