Celebrate Black Teachers and Students

This project is part of the Black History Month celebration because it supports a Black teacher or a school where the majority of the students are Black.

My Students

I teach elementary students at a Title I school that have an intellectual disability, a learning disability or a health impairment that impacts their learning in reading, math and/or writing. When my students come into my classroom, they all work so hard. Everyone sets a goal and as their teacher, I help them achieve it.

My students work so hard and they deserve a fun space to build on their love for learning.

My Project

Imagine struggling with reading and not finding a book you can enjoy? Imagine coming to school and not having a fun learning environment to help with the struggle of learning? I strive to find different materials to help my struggling readers become more interested in reading, so having new books in my library will do just that! The light covers and floor lamp will set the environment for a fun learning space that will help students feel comfortable. The binders will help with student data notebooks so they can achieve their goals. I believe that all of my students can reach any goal they set for themselves and that they can learn despite any challenges they may have.

My hope is that the new books in my library help my students find a love for reading.
