Mrs. Cogorno from San Ramon CA is requesting Books through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.

Leveling Up Our Library

Help me give my students new library books and a bookshelf. The books include fantasy novels we will use for book clubs later this year, high-interest graphic novels, and books that will assist in our SEL lessons.

My Students

Our school's vision is to promote collaboration between staff, parents, and students to achieve academic excellence. We strive to create a safe environment, which fosters the development of responsible, caring students who are lifelong learners who are prepared to meet the challenges of a culturally diverse community.

Our classroom is made up of 22 wonderful children who are eager to learn.

They are a kind, hardworking group of students in San Ramon, CA. Each child brings different talents and interests to our group, and we celebrate our great diversity.

My Project

These books and supplies will level up our classroom library and provide a dynamic learning experience for our students.

Our students are lifelong learners and readers and I hope to cultivate their love for education and learning through this project.

The best way to increase reading ability is to read more, and these books will continue to help my students grow stronger in reading. These books have been chosen with my students in mind. All students learn differently and I hope to provide my students with lessons filled with compassion, initiative, challenges, and understanding. Thank you for helping make these ideas become a reality.
