My Students

I support really interesting students in multiple grades, who is trying to learn English, while they learn in English. We address them as ESL (English as a second language, but some of my students already speak 2 or 3 languages!)

My kids are a diverse group of students, with unique social, emotional, and academic needs, based on their prior experiences.

My job is to help them bridge the language gap to make them feel welcome!

My Project

As my student shift from learning to read to reading to learn I am looking for ways to incorporate games activities gives them a chance to practice and strengthen their reading comprehension skills.

Your generous donation will provide my scholars with short daily comprehension practices.

Reading resources will provide more exposure to students. Kids will practice with a variety of texts, and their comprehension skills will become better.

So many of my students need to build their vocabulary and background knowledge in order to become better readers. This project will be a great support for them in achieving their goal

I want to make sure that my students are getting numerous opportunities every day to work on reading comprehension!
