My Students

Voltaire said, “Let us read, and let us dance; these two amusements will never do any harm to the world.”

In a world that is uncertain, help me to provide a safe, fun, learning environment for my students!

My students may not have the best home life.... I hope my classroom is a home away from home and having shelves full of books is a start. Often times, reading a book can transport us into another world. With your help I can provide my students with an alternative universe!

My Project

This project will provide books to help students grow in their reading skills. Every student is at a different reading level and requires different levels of books. This project will allow me to purchase books for students at different levels. I will also be able to purchase resources to help students grow their skills and knowledge. My students this year have really shown an interest in learning to read. Once they learn to read, they can read to learn. Books provide us with an alternative universe to escape and grow.
