My Students

I have 19 amazing and busy first-grade kiddos this year. My kids love to learn and are hard workers. While we have everything we need, these supplies would help our classroom become a more comfortable and fun place to learn for my active class.

I teach in a Title I school, where 100% of our students receive free breakfast, lunch, and supper.

Despite the economic hardships of our community, my students are eager to learn and do their best. They come ready to learn each day with a great attitude. They support each other and look out for each other.

By offering new and different ways to learn, students will be more successful.

My Project

Over the summer I happened to cross paths with an incredible author. He agreed to make the trip from Canada to do a writers workshop with my students. I want to be able to provide each of our students with one of his books to remember this incredible experience.

This book will be a something students can save and treasure from this once in a lifetime experience.

We live in a small coastal town where our students do not have the chance to meet an author. Having this opportunity and a book to remember their experience will be something that they will remember for a lifetime. I want our students to see that they can become anything. Being an author or illustrator is within their grasp.

With these books, we will be able to give each child in our school a book to take home and keep. Being in a low-income​ area, we are always looking for ways to help our students get more books in their homes.

Help us inspire the next generation of authors and illustrators by making reading and writing fun!
