My Students

Keep Calm and Read On - gives my students motivation to continue reading.

I teach 1st-4th grade students with disabilities.

My students have difficulty learning to read and being motivated to read because of the struggles they face. Our school is located in a high needs community with a large percentage of English Language Learners. Most of my students have limited resources and support.

My Project

A class set of the TOON into reading will give my students a compelling resource to motivate them to pick up a book and read. Students with reading disabilities tend to avoid recreational reading. The subject and artistry entice students to explore the pages and spark an interest in the gift of reading.

Giving the gift of reading will make a difference for students who really need it.

Your donation will provide my Special Education students a valuable and necessary classroom resource.
