My Students

I teach many English language learners who are anxious to succeed and learn something new each day! We have a dedicated staff of teachers at our school who bring their best to the class and to each and every lesson they teach.

Some of my students come from homes that do not have everyday technology, such as home computers or even basic Internet access.

I teach at a Title I school where roughly half of our students receive free or reduced-price lunch. They are working their hardest to try to learn as much as they can and to develop good study skills.

My Project

My students love to read! We have a fairly extensive library that we have built up as a class community over the past several years! I love being able to share the love of reading with my students each day!

It is so exciting to hear my students sharing and discussing books with one another and noticing theme, characterization, and life lessons in their texts!

In order to get my students finding books more easily we would love to add some book organizer bins to our classroom bookshelves! These bins would be organized by genre so that my students can more easily find the type of book they are looking for! We are holding a 30 Book Challenge this year where students read 30 books from various genres. These bins will enable them to select their books more efficiently!
