My Students

My students are racially, culturally, and linguistically diverse. These students vary widely in their skills, gifts, strengths, needs, abilities, and disabilities. A majority of the students are eligible for free or reduced-price​ lunch. Most of my students say that they hate reading, which breaks my heart. I want to foster a love of reading and push my students to grow as readers and learners.

My students inspire me every single day.

Some of them have gone through and experienced things that I could never imagine. They still come to school and give their all. Books help us to push the limits of our imagination and learning.

Some of my students have never ventured far from our 5000 person town. The best way for them to travel the world is through reading.

My Project

The high-interest reading intervention folders will get my students passionate about reading. My students are in 4th grade, but many of them read below grade level.

Having the right tools to help these children make the job a little bit easier.

In our school, we dedicate 45 minutes of our day to service our struggling students with interventions that will help them become successful. During this time we will work in a small group using the Reading folders to provide students with the tools each needs to be ready for the next grade level.

During this period, the students will be divided into​ small groups and will work on the skills each is currently struggling at during regular instruction.
