My Students

I am a first-year, Dual Language teacher in a classroom full of 21 amazing students! In my classroom, we love to laugh, enjoy hands-on activities and have a big love for learning! My students have come a tremendous way since the beginning of the school year and are glowing with pride, as am I!

Each day I see a spark of interest in so many different subjects that I am determined in bringing everything I can into the classroom.

My Project

I love encouraging my students to explore a variety of genres and students need immediate and frequent access to books to encourage reading. Adding to my classroom library will encourage this exposure and our reading area becomes a new and exciting area.

In addition, this donation will help get books into their hands, feeling the joy of turning the pages, anticipating a new adventure or learning facts of which they would only experience in a book.

Having the "Fill the Shelves" match is just what can make this happen. I am very thankful for your donation in playing an important part in our classroom!
