My Students

My students are a boisterous and engaging group of deserving middle school-aged students with varying academic and social-emotional needs, who thrive when they have a variety of materials to supplement the curriculum and actively engage them in the learning process.

My Project

Having a wide variety of Scholastic reading materials will help me supplement the curriculum to meet each student's individual needs. Allowing each student to have their own individual copy will allow them to be invested in the learning experience and will also be a wonderful resource that they can take home and share with family and friends. Students will also enjoy the magazine format with bright and inviting illustrations and captions.

I can't wait to use these materials to promote grade-level reading, writing, and math content in a manner in which all students can actively participate and progress.
