My Students

Smiles light up my classroom. My school is a Title I school in Eastern Prince William County. About 67% of our students receive free or reduced rate lunch. The majority of my students are ESOL (English as a second language) students. They have to work extra hard in order to be successful. I have had the privilege of working with both my students and their parents to better their education. My kids in my classroom develop a love for learning and a work ethic that is indescribable.

Their home life is not always ideal and that is why I strive to make our classroom a safe loving environment for them!

From the minute my kids walk into our classroom they know they are loved. The kids in the class become MY kids throughout the school year and I couldn't love and respect them more!

My Project

I am going into my 6th year teaching, but this is only my 3rd year in third grade. With that being said, I have collected books throughout the years and have a pretty good size library. However, there are still a few series I am missing which my kids would absolutely adore! I have a number of books but the organization is what I have been struggling with. I need more bookcases so my students can see the different types of books I have to offer. Organization is key in a classroom library! The chairs on top of the bookshelves will be really useful for students to sit in, while they independently read. I know without a doubt my kids are going to love the new bookcases and the additional books for our library. Thank you for your consideration in sponsoring my project. I will be sure to post pictures of the bookshelves and books in use!
