My Students

I teach at a Title I school in southeastern Virginia. My students are eager to learn and love to be at school. Many of my students come to school from violent neighborhoods. School is a safe and happy place for them. Our school is also proud to have many ESL students. 100% of our students get free lunch and free breakfast this year. I am so happy to be their teacher because the are so eager to learn. It makes me so proud to see them blossom and become lifelong learners.

My Project

My students need more exposure to hearing good literature. By providing them with an audiobook station they will be able to hear even more stories read aloud to them. Thankfully a friend donated many audio books to our classroom. Sadly we have no way to listen to them currently.

With this project students will be able to listen to classic stories and hear new favorites read aloud to them during center time.

Children aren't read to nearly enough these days and this project will help!

The baskets will make the current library in our classroom neat, organized and attractive to 1st graders looking for just the right book. Students will be able to independently pick a book for their reading enjoyment.
