My Students

I teach in a urban district where students are at school from 7:30-3:00. They receive free breakfast, lunch, and snacks. Our teachers serve a dual role as educators and parents. Our school kids are passionate about learning and truly love coming to school. Resources are slim but the relationships we build are strong!

Our students need phonics and reading games to help them improve their reading skills in a fun way.

In addition, the reading specialist and ELL teachers need a copier/printer for their room.

My Project

Reading Readiness in 1-3 is fundamental but sadly not all students come to school with literacy exposure and practice. Many times, elementary school is their first experience with rich literature and phonemic awareness instruction. My students have a love of learning! All they need are passionate teachers and basic resources to thrive. We need phonemic awareness and phonics games to help our students learn in a fun way during targeted reading intervention groups. Also, the reading interventionist and the ELL teachers need a printer/copier for our shared room to be able to provide the best instruction and material for our students.
