My Students

My students are incredibly special! They enjoy reading, learning, and helping others. We have a very diverse population. Many of my students were born in other countries, and English is their second language. They are at all stages of language development. Almost one quarter of my students receive special education services, and more the half of them receive free or reduced lunch. They love to read and learn. They make me laugh, and I make them feel safe, loved, and so smart!

My Project

I am working to make my students fall in love with reading, and I believe that if they participate in the March Book Madness will will do just that! They will go on adventures to new worlds and make new friends within the pages of these books. They will make connections with each other, also, as they share books and discuss what they read. Ultimately, these books will help launch them into a lifetime of reading and maybe even help them to help others discover the love of reading. These books will open up new worlds and opportunities, and I am excited to watch my students explore.
