My Students

Every day is a new adventure and we are excited to learn new things.

My students are English Language Learners who love school and enjoy developing new skills.

They need support to develop their language and acquire the skills that will make them succeed in school and in like.

My students have goals for the future and in order to help them achieve them, they need to be provided with tools that will support their learning. They have the desire to learn and need to be provided every possible opportunity to succeed.

My Project

My students need books to practice their reading skills at school and at home. They are in need of reading material that is interesting, at their level and will allow them to develop a love for reading. They need to be engaged in the topics to understand that reading is not only a subject in school, it is a way to learn about the world. English Language Learners need support to acquire language to become successful students.

They are eager to practice and learn, but need to be provided with meaningful opportunities and materials to support their learning.

By having these books, the students will have an opportunity to practice and apply what they have learned at home.
