My Students

Alvin is a very diverse community filled with students that truly want to learn and succeed in school. My classroom is lively and always welcoming . Students come ready to learn as best they can.

Even though we are a growing community, we still retain that small town feel.

It's as if everyone knows everyone. The students get along.

Our school has along history going back over 120 years. We have pride in our school and what it can accomplish.

My Project

The one things student deplore about classroom reading is that the titles presented by the school are not to their liking. They also grieve at their lack of choice in books and many other aspects of education.

These books will allow them more freedom to choose a book that they can connect with, and thus finish.

Students want to have an interest in their reading materials. By blending self-selected and classical pieces of literature, we see that the students are engaged and active in their reading and learning. Students are also allowed to pick a book on their reading level allowing for students with special needs to be reading full novels alongside their classmates.
