My Project

As a resource teacher, students from all elementary grade levels are welcomed into my classroom. I would love to be able to offer each student an immersive reading environment with books on their reading level and interest types. This a large influx of new books for my students to enjoy, so I will also need new shelves to put them on! I particularly enjoy the storage cubes because they are low enough that all of my students would have access to the books on the top shelf!

It is a magical moment when a student picks up a book and develops a love for reading!

Not only do I want to help my students achieve their reading goals, but also instill a lifelong love for reading! With your help you can bring this magical moment to our elementary school!
