My Students

The kids who take my class come from a rural economically disadvantaged area.

These kids are fantastic kids, but local economics often get in the way of their educational opportunities.

Every kid in our district gets free breakfast due to the poverty in our community.

Our kids bang up against adversity every day, and most days they crush it. They deal with their own problems, their parents' problems, and their schools' problems. However, problems caused by the lack of school funding are not problems any teenager should have to overcome. Please help me remove at least one stumbling block from their path.

My Project

My students work on author study projects every year. This project requires my students to choose an author that has written multiple books. They will then choose several of the author's books to read.

Please help give my students an author they will fall in love with!

Many of my students come to my room as reluctant readers. Once they find an author they like, the attitude often completely changes. Please help provide an entertaining collection my kids will be sure to love.

It is always a treat to watch a student who was initially reluctant to read, transition to a student who looks forward to reading days. It is even better when they come in after a weekend and declare that they have "finished the book!" Please help me provide choices to my students that will help them discover the joy of reading!
