My Students

I am a fifth-grade teacher at a local charter school. I have 23 students enrolled in my classroom, all of which have their own unique backgrounds, cultures, skills, and personalities. What makes our school and my classroom so unique is the fact that the parents are extremely involved (coming from a public school, I am not used to this!) They are appreciative of what we do in class and what their child has accomplished this year. My students come from many different family backgrounds--including many different incomes.

My students are dreamers, thinkers, talkers, and questioners.

My biggest goal, in being an educator, is providing the best learning environment possible for all 23 of my different learners. This school provides free and reduced-price lunches to students who qualify. Many of the students in my classroom qualifies for free or reduced-price lunch. This gives you an idea of what our budget consists of and what type of funds I have as a teacher. I have ELL, Gifted, IEP students, and everything in between.

My Project

The materials and supplies that I am requesting for my students already have a "home." In other words, I know exactly where everything will go. We just need your help in getting everything through our door!

We all know the importance of reading.

We know that reading will help develop the mind. Unfortunately, not enough children will read when they are at home. Weather they don't have books at home, or they don't have the time. However, by having the books in our classroom, I can make sure they are getting what they need.

This is where we need YOU! By getting these 53 new books for our class, we can expand our classroom library and find new books to read everyday! Now, my 22 children will have all new books to choose from that will not only build their reading fluency and vocabulary, but help build their imaginations!
