My Students

I love my students because majority of them come from a low income home, but despite the battle they face academically they are here and ready to learn. They each have their own specific talent and trait, which I love! I am looking for a way to replenish my notebook stock for my students. I am in need of new notebooks for my students. I am an English teacher and teach fifth grade where my students are required to write/ take notes quite a bit in order to keep up with the novels we are reading with the curriculum, but it’s December and my students have run out of space in their notebooks.
