My Students

More than 80% of my campus is free or reduced-price lunch and we receive Title I money from the state.

My class is made up of twenty-two free spirited, squishy cheek children that come from many walks of life.

I don't see red, yellow, black or white, money issues or mommy and daddy issues. When you walk inside my classroom, we are one!

These students deserve the very best. And regardless of how, I will make it happen. With your donation to costly projects like these, it allows my personal money to go towards other essential/daily room supplies.

My Project

This is my first year in third grade. Coming from a younger grade level, my books really need some updating! I've had some of these students before, so we really need a refresh.

I need to be able to provide my students will age-appropriate and engaging text.

With these new books, my students will be able to choose from a variety of books that will allow them to read independently at their own grade level. The best way to increase reading ability is to read more, and these books will continue to help my students grow stronger in reading.
