My Students

Students can get easily discouraged in a classroom where the books aren't representing who they are and what their culture is like. Through Donors Choose and the many donors, I have been able to provide my students an outlet through reading!

My students desperately need that ONE book in their hands that I know will change their young and creative minds about reading.

My job as their English teacher is to push the love for reading on them. Reading is essential; they will NEED it for their future, which Is why I am continuing my mission to provide and set up a diverse mini library in the classroom where students have easy access to these titles.

I have a few more titles needed to continue our diverse collection in the classroom as well as a bookshelf or two to properly display these new and exciting books!

My Project

Our freshman class recently received over 75 new novels through our most recent Donors Choose project. Since I am a new teacher here at this school, we have had to heavily depend on donations to create a beautiful learning environment and obtain resources.

My students were very excited for their new novels to arrive, and it is time to get some new shelves to give these novels a "NEW HOME".

The novels deserve it and so do my students!

I feel that if I properly display these novels, my non-readers will find them intriguing and will be more likely to pick a book up. Thank you for supporting our classroom!
