My Students

These students are warriors fighting for their future. They're constantly challenging those who are trying to guide them to make sure they are benefiting them the most. These students have taken every challenge I have thrown at them and surpassed all expectations.

These students deserve to be challenged and to be believed in them.

They have all the tools to be successful. By supporting them you're investing in their future. I know that they will achieve great things in their life if they're properly encouraged.

My Project

My students have made tremendous gains, but need to continue to be challenged. I am hoping to expand my library to something more full and extensive.

My students have changed from students who would never pick up a book, to saying wow, this is a really good book.

Many of them have made requests on what they like to read and have asked me to get it for them. This time there is an assortment of books from native authors, to books for developing young adults, to self-awareness books. I am hoping with this order of books my students can make the final push to having 70% on grade level. It's been our goal for a while, but I believe we can achieve it.
