My Students

Orangefield is a small town in Southeast Texas. This past August, Hurricane Harvey devastated our area including our elementary school. Orangefield Elementary is currently housed in the Orangefield Junior High.

Orangefield teachers and students lost a lot of important educational materials due to flood damage.

We have faced a lot of hurdles this year. Many of my students were and are still without a home. We could use your help to replace materials lost to enhance our students learning experience.

My Project

When our school flooded, myself along with most of our teachers lost a great deal of teaching materials. Most materials took years of teaching to collect. I lost many of my leveled reading books, manipulatives used for centers, and a class set of privacy shields.

I used my leveled reading books to teach Guided Reading.

Guided Reading is small group instruction with leveled readers and plays a huge role in the success of reading fluency and comprehension in first grade. Please help me replace the books I lost in my classroom due to Hurricane Harvey. By selecting my project, you will help my current students and future students for years to come become successful readers.

Thank you!
