My Students

I have an amazing class full of diverse students. I work for a charter school that focuses on diversity. We pull students from some of the wealthiest and poorest communities. It's so amazing to see how these students from different backgrounds come together and work as a team. My goal is to create a positive environment that facilitates growth for all students. Our school is a true representation of the real world, and it is an amazing experience to be apart of it!

My Project

In my classroom, it is my job to provide books for my student. This includes books for instruction and books for students to read independently. These books are to be used to help teach students important lessons, for class discussion, and for introducing topics throughout the school year.

Help me provide my student with the best education possible!

This means providing them with the best educational resources. Books help students in many ways, including giving them information and providing them with stories to relate to. With a diverse group of students, I desire to have a classroom with a diverse library.
