My Students

I teach 7th and 8th graders that come from a wide variety of diverse backgrounds. The thing that makes my students most unique is that I have a large difference in reading levels. Throughout my day, I have students reading on a 2nd grade level and students reading on a 12th grade level, students who LOVE reading and students who HATE reading.

One of my main goals in teaching middle school English is getting students to see the value and joy of reading.

I am super passionate about seeing students discover good books. In order for this to happen, students need to be exposed to a wide variety of books that are relevant to their lives.

I am so appreciative of your support! I have so much love and energy for these students and your donations will make a world of difference for us.

My Project

These books will continue to enhance the classroom that I strive to create. The first step in creating students is who value reading is providing access to a wide variety of relevant books. Every student book that is placed in my library is treated with love and care, and they are thankful for the opportunities to read. All of these books have been chosen with my students in mind; I have watched my students devour titles just like these, and I have also asked them what type of books they would enjoy reading. Students will be able to choose books, which will help them continue to enjoy independent reading time.

With these new books, my students will be able to choose from a variety of books that will allow them to read independently at their own grade level.

They will also be able to choose books that interest them. The best way to increase reading ability is to read more, and these books will continue to help my students grow stronger in reading. This project will help enrich my students' experiences with books.
