My Students

My students are amazing! They work hard and try their best, even with limited resources. Although our school has a population that usually receives about 51% free or reduced-price lunch, teachers in our building strive to make sure all students have an equal opportunity to learn and reach their goals, no matter their socioeconomic status.

I spend my days with 130 7th graders of different races, cultures, and socioeconomic backgrounds.

My job as a teacher is to make sure they have the same opportunities and an equal playing field to ensure their success! We develop a community of learners by living our school motto on a daily basis: "Work Hard, Play Fair, and Take Care of Each Other."

My Project

Research shows that reading is the single best way to improve a child's academic skills. As you can imagine, convincing young teenagers to read can be a challenge. Having books available that my students find interesting is the key to getting even the most resistant readers to become lost in the world of books. All the book titles I have asked for in this project have been specifically requested by our students.

Mustangs who read, succeed!

At my school, we encourage students to carry an independent reading book at all times. In reality, not all students bring books to class because some of them cannot obtain reading materials outside of the school building. Supporting this project for my classroom will ensure that I can provide my students with engaging and challenging reading materials!
