Help to Develop Life Long Readers

Help me give my students the chance to pick up a book and be transported through literacy to another world, or dive deeper into understanding their own.

My Students

Attending elementary school in the heart of San Francisco, my students roam through a concrete landscape on their way to school in the morning. They come from all over the city, and some even across the bay, to a community focused on teaching acceptance and awareness. Our school's pledge:

"I pledge allegiance to the world, to cherish every living thing, to care for earth, and sea, and air, with peace and freedom everywhere."

My students are curious and creative. They ask questions about how our world functions, think critically about phenomenons they observe, and create solutions for challenges they see. My students are the future innovators of our community and our world.

My Project

Reading can be tough, not only do you have to read the words, but teacher's expect you to LEARN from the book?! There are so many engaging, inspiring, and exciting books that kids LOVE to read. Please help bring a love of literacy into my classroom for learners who have been struggling to read. My students connect to books about animals, graphic novels, and books about mystery and adventure.

“One child, one teacher, one book, one pen can change the world.”When my students have books at their level that they can read, and that they WANT to read, it sparks conversation, excitement, and drive.

I hope for students in my classroom to be buzzing about books they love.
