My Students

My school is located in Englewood; a community which "consistently ranks as one of the most dangerous neighborhoods in the city" according to a WGN news report.

Despite the hardships that my students face, they are resilient, curious, playful, and eager to learn.

Kindergarten is such a pivotal time in the lives of youth. Many of them have to adjust to being away from their parents for such a long period of time, in addition to having to adjust to meeting other new faces and following new rules. Literature is a wonderful way to open these little ones' minds to worlds of possibilities.

My Project

Having these books in class will make a difference in my students' learning by providing me with a variety of different text from which to teach content skills, in addition to addressing social-emotional learning. These materials will also allow my students access to a wide- range of topics, and therefore choices when it comes to reading.

My vision is for every student to feel like "a kid in a candy store" when they enter our classroom library.

Having access to these materials will put me one step closer to making that dream a reality. These materials will go beyond the classroom, as students will be able to take books home to share with their families; strengthening the home-school connection. I want to make a lasting, positive impact on the lives of my students, and having this project funded would be the perfect start!
