Mr. Estevez from Brooklyn NY is requesting Books through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.
My students need access to quality, authentic literature that will broaden their vocabulary, enhance their literacy skills and foster a passion for reading. These books would be a valuable asset to our developing classroom library!
As a teacher in a low-income/high poverty school district, my students are faced with several challenges both in and out of the classroom. Despite the many challenges they face, I am looking to provide my students with creative and meaningful learning experiences.
My students are full of energy and life.
They like to move, they love to read and love lots of positive attention. Many of them are being raised in single parent households and receive a free lunch based on their socioeconomic status. These things may prevent them from getting ahead early in life and may not provide them with the life experiences many of us see as "typical". From the minute they walk in the door of my classroom, I focus on their potential and growth while they are with me. Athough I may not be able to control their home lives, I can certainly control their experience during the school day. By doing this in a creative and positive way, I am hope inspire my students to continue on a path of academic excellence.
Reading is a basic and essential life skill. When it comes to reading, one of the best ways to learn and improve is through exposure to many, many books and lots of hands on experience. Unfortunately, the books that are in our school are outdated and in bad condition. My goal is to build a vast classroom library of high quality literature in order to help my students overcome their delays, learn to read, and foster a lifelong love of reading.
Through the use of an exciting and welcoming classroom library right at their fingertips every day, the sky is the limit for my students!
By building these important skills and improving their reading abilities now, it will be a launching point for them to insure a successful future as they move forward in school and eventually into the working world as productive adults.
