My Students

My 4th graders are active in their learning, they are so inquisitive, and are always looking to study more in depth.

My students love learning.

They come from caring homes, but every year more and more families are unable to donate to the classroom due to financial issues. I teach in a K-8 school, and due to that I get to see them grow all the way through junior high. My students are eager to read, eager to learn and a pleasure to work with. I am thankful for them, and I wouldn't want to teach anywhere else.

My Project

I am hoping to gain these nonfiction biographical figure books for my students and our classroom library. The new Common Core standards focus on nonfiction text, which my library is sadly limited in. I can't afford to purchase these books by myself; I need help in order for my students to dive deep with their research. Please consider helping my class.

These donations will improve my classroom by allowing my students the opportunity to learn important biographical information that will enrich their educational experience.

I know my students will benefit deeply from these books.
