My Students

My students from Houston are curious and ambitious young adults. They are so smart and work so diligently on class assignments. My students are very creative as well, and I love being able to let them show their creativity in different ways.

My students are eager to read and discuss with classmates about their book(s).

I would love to provide my students with a variety of a resources to help grow their eager minds. These kids really do love learning, and I know they have a bright future ahead of them.

My Project

The current dictionaries we have in class are old, outdated, and falling apart. There are many pages missing from out current dictionaries so students are not able to find all the definitions they need. I would love for each student in my classroom to have a dictionary so they do not have to share. These dictionaries will help expand my student's vocabulary and help them further their knowledge of the English language. By having these new dictionaries, my students will be able to help with their writing skills.

Please help support this project so that students will have the opportunity to use a functioning dictionary.
