My Students

We have such a diverse group of kids at my school: kids from all different backgrounds and from different socioeconomic levels. We have gifted kids and kids with special needs.

I work directly with students who struggle with reading and math and who need some extra help to get caught up.

Many of my students are English Language Learners. They all have something in common. They all love to learn. They also love reading new books and experiencing new things.

My Project

I am the head of the I Love To Read Month planning group in my school. Over the past few years we have started a tradition of getting books into the hands of kids. This February, we hop to again present books to every kid in our school.

As a reading teacher, I am a firm believer that the more books kids have access to, the more they will love to read.

During I Love To Read Month, all students will have a time to come to our "eagle book store" and do some shopping for a new book of their very own. This will be theirs to keep. Building a personal library is essential to becoming an avid reader.

All of the books in this proposal will be given to students, for them to keep. They will get to choose the book they love.

It is my goal to get books in the hands of all the kids in my school.
