My Students

"Teachers who love teaching, teach children who love learning." As I enter my 20th year of teaching, I continue to follow this mantra in my classroom. I teach 28 wonderful students who come from poverty. My students are from varying ethnic backgrounds. Most of them come from homes that are struggling financially.

My students are extremely motivated, and they are genuinely respectful to each other.

They are lovers of learning, and I am truly grateful to be their teacher this year. They come to school with smiles on their faces, and they are eager to learn. We need new books to use in our literacy centers.

My Project

My first grade students are amazing readers. Story time is one of our favorite times of the day. I'd like to provide my students with a variety of different types of books. The I SPY riddle books would be a fantastic addition to our classroom library. Each book contains a riddle on each page and has the reader hunting for certain objects. The pictures are bright and colorful.

These books will provide endless hours of fun for my students to enjoy with a friend or on their own.

My students would have so much fun searching and solving the riddles.
