My Students

My students are incredible! Last year, most of my students were very similar in their interests, their lives, their work ethic, and for the most part, they came from similar backgrounds and economic status. We've recently had a boundary change in our school district, and now there is much more diversity in my classroom. Now my students come from low income families, many of them are learning English for the very first time this year, and because of the mix of cultures and backgrounds our classroom looks very different this year than the past 11 years that I've taught.

A lot of students this year have complained about how much they dislike reading because of past experiences.

I try to keep my classroom library updated, and it's been fun to show books to those particular students and see a change in them!

My Project

Many students have gotten into a reading slump because of being away from school for so long because of lock down, quarantine, shorter class time, etc. Because they've gotten out of the habit of reading for enjoyment, they need to get back in the routine of reading regularly!

I know that we as a class can accomplish re-establish a love of reading by having fresh new books that are high interest!

By having these generous donations of new books for a class library, students will have a book that they won't be able to put down.
