My Students

As a teacher in a low-income/high poverty school district, my students are faced with several challenges both in and out of the classroom. Despite the many challenges they face, I do my best to keep things simple and provide my students with creative and meaningful learning experiences.

My students are creative, clever and very spontaneous.

They like to move, they love to read and thrive with lots of positive attention. Many of them are being raised in single parent households and receive a free lunch based on their socioeconomic status. These things may prevent them from getting ahead early in life and may not provide them with the life experiences many of us see as "typical". From the minute they walk in the door of my classroom, I focus on their potential and growth while they are with me. I may not be able to control their home lives, however, I can certainly control their experience during the school day. By doing this in a creative and positive way, I am hopeful to inspire every child to continue on a path of academic excellence.

My Project

These books will continue to enhance the print-rich classroom that I strive to create. My classroom library is a place that my students really enjoy. This series engages my students in excitement and wonder, and they are thankful for the opportunities to read these books. These books have been chosen with my students in mind. I ask them what type of books they would enjoy reading, and what I think will have lasting impact on what they learn. Students become completely captivated by every word and want to read more! Using these books helps my students continue to enjoy reading time.

With this new book set, my students will be able to engage in the magical world of reading and be encouraged to read independently.

This set will also foster more interest in reading. The best way to increase reading ability is to instill a love for reading, and these books will continue to help my students learn to love it. My students already have shown an astonishing interest in independent reading, and this project will only help enrich their experiences with the printed word.
