My Students

I teach in a low-income/high poverty school district; my students face several challenges in and out of the classroom. Despite these challenges, I am thrilled to provide my students with quality learning experiences, ones that they will never forget.

When my kindergarten students walk through my classroom door, some often come to school brimming over with enthusiasm and excitement for learning!

Their enthusiasm for school life can be exhausting but infectious and teaching them is an exciting and joyful experience!

My Project

The book bins will allow my students to have the freedom to choose books responsibly and in an organized fashion without my assistance. I have a quaint library section of my classroom that allows my students to relax, and be able to dive into a good book. My students need book bins to organize their leveled books that they can independently choose from during guided reading and read to self time.

Donations to this project will improve my classroom by allowing students to have easy access to leveled books.

Since my goal is to have them become independent and responsible readers, this will cater to helping reach this goal.
