My Students

I teach in a small, rural, southern school, where over 70% of our students live below the poverty line. Many of my students do not have books in their homes and are not able to have educational experiences outside of the classroom.

I want to provide a learning atmosphere that will excite my students!

I teach honors and college prep level seniors who are preparing for life after graduation. Because my students are so very close to finishing their education, it is often hard to motivate them to want to learn. I want my students to be life-long readers; therefore, I want my classroom to look less like a classroom and more like a place where adults would go to participate in learning.

Over the last few years, I have invested in creating a classroom library where I house current, best-selling novels for my students to read. My students are loving the books! Now, I want to create a more inviting and comfortable place for my students to read.

My Project

These items will make a difference in my classroom because they will provide an alternative place for my students to sit during class time. My school provides plenty of student desks; however, I want to make my room more comfortable for students...especially during Independent Reading Time.

My major goal is to create life-long readers, writers, and thinkers; therefore I want to begin to recreate real world reading settings.

Many of my students love going to book stores and coffee shops to read. I would like to create that kind of atmosphere in my classroom. Studies show that students who are comfortable during class instruction learn more!
