My Students

Our favorite chant is: "In our class, we try and try again!" My students come from a high poverty school district where 100% of our students receive free breakfast and lunch. The challenges that face them at home are almost insurmountable.

Curious, excited, and willing to work hard, my students love coming to school!

They thrive in a creative environment where they help set their learning goals and are provided with multiple ways to learn and solve problems. Hard work is rewarded and relationships are built and nourished. My hope is to instill in each student a life-long love of learning!

My Project

My students live in a community that does not have a library and many of them do not have transportation to get to the next town that does have a library.

I would like to bring the library to my school's community!

My students struggle to read and do not have books that are easily accessible. I would use the little library to stock it full of books for a variety of reading levels, skills, and interests. My parents talk about not being able to provide their students with books to read at night so providing them with books that they could have access to every day will bring literacy to over 500 families.

Having a little library would allow English language learners to have more access to books in English and Spanish and build a community of readers. Thank you for helping me build a life-long love of reading!
