My Students

As educators, more often than not, we are expected to provide high-quality learning opportunities in our classrooms despite having insufficient materials to do so.

As a new teacher, it is particularly difficult to provide adequate materials for students.

My scholars are brilliant and they deserve high-quality resources and materials that are similar to their higher-income peers. This gap should not determine a difference in their educational experience.

The community of learners in which I teach is vibrant, tight-knit, joyful, and eager to learn each and every day​. My students are dreamers. They dig deep into their learning, demonstrate curiosity through questioning, and display a sense of energy that is contagious. My students deserve nothing less than amazing. They are the future!

My Project

Teachers will do anything to make reading fun and engaging for students. This includes what the students read and how they read in the classroom.

Help my students enjoy their Friday reading time with what will be called "Flashlight Fridays!" This will be a time when the lights will be turned off and students will grab their flashlights and shine a light on their reading!

In addition, many of the books added here can be enjoyed during this time!

I can already imagine how much they will enjoy this time in the classroom. It will add a feel of excitement to independent and shared reading time!
