My Students

My students are bursting with energy and have a strong desire to grow and learn.

The majority of my students are Native American and due to the low socioeconomic area we live in, 100 percent of my students receive free breakfast and lunch at school.

I am aware of the challenges many of my students face and I make sure that when they walk through my classroom door, they are all given an equal opportunity to learn in a positive, encouraging environment.

My Project

We love having a plethora of books at our fingertips, but we also need an organized way to store them. We need two tall wooden birch bookshelves to keep our classroom library organized and accessible for all students.

My students love to read and I love nothing more than watching them grow into life long readers.

These two sturdy bookshelves will allow students to see all of our books by author or series. The bookshelves will help students to be able to choose books with ease. We can't thank you enough for helping us grow as ravenous readers and learners.
