My Students

My students walk into our classroom every day full of life!

I teach at a Title I school in Michigan where 100 percent of our students receive free breakfast and lunch.

Many of my students receive backpack food on the weekend. Despite so many hardships, my students are eager to learn and do their best. They want to be in school because they want to learn all they can so they can be successful one day. My students will be forever grateful for any donation!

My Project

I work in a Title I school, and most of my students come from at-risk families. They do not have the funds to purchase books. Any of the books they have are from my classroom library. We are in need of books that will allow them to expand their reading ability.

By donating to our project you will not only help to improve and increase reading, you will ultimately help to increase their academic achievement as a whole.

My students enjoy reading fiction and nonfiction alike. I am in need of the requested books to keep my students interested and challenged every day.
