My Students

School is an exciting place for my students! They are constantly finding new ways to challenge themselves and grow their brains. By trying new strategies, taking on challenges, and learning from their mistakes, we have learned that true learning comes from hard work.

Whether it's reading a new, engaging book or a math concept that makes them stop and think, my third graders are learning throughout their whole day at school.

However, there are always ways to reach more students and keep them focused throughout the entire day.

That's where we need your help!

My Project

My classroom library is in shambles! I moved from NYC back to Michigan and adopted a classroom that was low on high quality books for my kids. There are books but students often spend an extended amount of time trying to find a book they want to read. I often have to tell them to try a book so they spend some time reading.

Engaging books can make all the difference in a child's love of reading!

These books would encourage students to read because the books LOOK good. Not only that, students can find books that are on their reading level to make sure they can comprehend the text.

Books are incredibly expensive and I know I can't afford this on my own. Your donations with last for years and will affect the lives of hundreds of students. Please consider donating!
