My Students

The students I teach are wonderful children who just don't have the means to finding the support outside of school to assist them with academic success. Most of my students have the love of learning and excitement for learning how to read and write. All of the students in our school are truly amazing and lovely young children.

I teach struggling students how to read in K-2 and it is exciting when they become beginning readers.

You should see the glow in their faces when they understand how to read. The feeling I receive from students learning how to read is absolutely amazing and solidifies the reasons why I became a teacher.

My Project

I chose interlocking book bins from School Specialty store to help me complete a new and revised literacy library in our school. The book bins will allow me to keep all of our leveled reading books nicely organized and easy for teachers and students to find reading books at their level.

Our K-3rd grade teaching staff will be able to find the books students need that will enhance our students reading levels.

Teachers and students will be able to walk into the literacy library and find the leveled reading books beginning from the first reading level to the last. This will also allow teachers to find a leveled reading book based on skills that each book focuses on. This will benefit our teachers and students to becoming fluent readers.
