My Students

"You have brains in your head. You have feet in your shoes. You can steer yourself any direction you choose. You're on your own and you know what you know. And you are the one who'll decide where to go." Dr. Seuss said, and my students apply this quote into their lives everyday.

My classroom is full of lively and loving children.

They love when they get time to read books and enjoy reading to each other. I am in my first year teaching and need to build my classroom library, as we are a small Title I school located in Florida and we do not have a school library. Most of the students in my class have never been to a library and have limited access to books as they live at an economic disadvantage. Please help us build our library and enrich their lives and reading ability.

My Project

These reading materials, various books and a reading rods kit will help change my students' lives for the better because they get the chance to read and see what lies in the literature world. It will help better their reading abilities and love of stories. Reading is a very important aspect in everyday life, we need to teach them young of that importance.

Please help my students and I build our classroom library.

Reading is a key fundamental in life and I want to be able to ensure that they get the resources they need to help them in their early literature journey. By helping our class build our library you will help the little minds in our class to grow and expand beyond belief, so they can be successful in life and reach their dreams. Please help us! We are so very grateful for any donation you give. Thank you!
