My Students

My students are often struggling readers who really just need that extra push to believe in themselves and overcome many obstacles. My students are hard workers but sometimes get stuck on simple tasks because they do not understand the topics. My students are sweet but needy students who really need a strong team to stand behind them and push against all the nay sayers. My students are well rounded and caring students who will become great adults with our support.

My Project

My students have come to my class with a little love for reading but really have read mostly graphic novels with no intent except entertainment. I have a few copies of the Gris Grimly that that have discovered and I cannot keep them on the shelves now.

These books will help me to be able guide them in their reading of difficult yet interesting books.

My students have really taken off in reading content that is different for them. These books will help to be able guide them in their reading of difficult yet interesting books. With these books, we will now have a class set of the books and be able to read them and discuss them together.
