My Students

Despite the hurdles they face my second grades have an unquenchable thirst for knowledge. Most of them come from low income house holds with parents that don't speak English and yet they are almost all above grade level. Although we don't have top of the line supplies they are very resourceful with what they have. These students are extremely bright and love learning just about everything! Every lesson I teach is gobbled up by them and they are left wanting for more.

Many of the students in my class have been labeled gifted, and there are many times that they end up teaching me things because of the wonderful way their mind works.

They constantly challenge me, which pleases me to no end.

My Project

It's been proven year after year that success in schools is attached to literacy levels. The stories in the school books that children are required to read are a good start, but there needs to be more. Children need to be able to read different books and truly fall in love with reading. If you can teach a child from a young age that reading is fun then you've set that child up for a successful future.

Children need to learn from an early age that reading is fun!

Reading isn't just something you do for school, or something you to do get your parents off your back, it's something to be enjoyed and even a time to look forward to! With these books I think my students will have plenty of opportunities to find books that they love!
