My Students

My students are hard working, engage and most of all curious. They are curious about the world and how it works. They are inquisitive and vibrant learners.

My students are sponges of knowledge that will love nothing more but a learning environment that will foster their learning and the passion for languages.

For most of my career I have rely on travelers bringing back magazines and newspapers so my students would be able to experience authentic language.

Your gift will allow my students to have the reading experience as well as the enrichment in the language that has been so limited till this time.

My Project

My goals is to have authentic reading materials for my language students who regularly do not have access to or the ability to purchase them.

I am trying to push literacy in all levels and the investment on these materials will maximize my efforts to increase the love of reading and the level of language proficiency among my students.

My students will use the selected reading materials to start authentic classroom conversations on current topics in the target language. I am sure that the use of language will increase just with the exposure to educational material in our target language as well as the exposure to current issues.
