My Students

My students come from a low socioeconomic environment. They are some of the sweetest students who are eager to learn. They truly deserve the best and I hope I can give them all that they deserve and more.

Our school is a Title I school with limited resources.

The entire school receives free breakfast and lunch. Some of my students look forward to those meals because sometimes it's the only meal they may eat in a day.

For some students school is their safe place and it is also a home away from home.

My Project

My students need leveled readers to read. These leveled books will assist with closing literacy gaps! My students need quick access to books that are at their reading level. We use leveled readers for small group guided reading. Having a class set of leveled readers will improve the literacy of my students as early learners.

Reading is an essential part of learning.

This project will fund a lifetime of learning and literacy for years to come.

My students have access to books in the library but they are not always easy to read as leveled readers are. They will be able to read these books for learning as well as for pleasure. Reading is a gift of a lifetime!
