My Students

I want my students to have access to a class library so I can instill the love of reading at a young age! I have a small selection of books, however, I believe that my students will benefit most if they have access to a wide variety of books and genres to choose from. As a new teacher, I hope to cultivate a love of reading by reading in class daily and allowing students to choose what they want to read.

My Project

I believe that reading is a critical component of each child's education, which is why I want to provide my students with as many books as possible. The more the better!

I hope that my students learn at an early age the positive and lasting impact that reading can have on a person's life.

I feel that the more books and genres students have access to, the more they will want to read. Studies show that reading can make a major difference in a child's education and I believe that the more my students read, the more successful they will be.
