My Students

This is a preemptive donation! This will be my first year teaching so I imagine my students all sorts of way but at the end of the year I hope to have students that will be happy, loud, messy, creative, adventurous and above all, kind!

My Project

These books will help kick start my library and help me to creative an environment based on a hunger for learning! The basis I if all learning is through literacy. If you can read, you can learn. Each book a child gets to hold has the absolute to transport them to a different time, location, mindset and so much more. I truly, truly believe that if a child says they don’t like reading it is simply because they haven’t found the right book yet. This donation will help eliminate that problem!
