My Students

"Small minds with big ideas."

I currently teach at an extremely poor Title I school in the city of Chicago where I feel I have learned more from the students than they have from me.

As a first year teacher, I was fortunate enough to receive this job. Although, it has been extremely difficult to educate students without the necessary supplies; yet, our students still come to school eager to learn. Our school rarely has extra funding for enriching materials and if there is, funds are used for the upper grades. Many of my students' families will never have additional money to purchase educational materials. Therefore, I hope to be able to provide a fun and interesting way of learning, so my students can succeed in life, in and out of the classroom.

My Project

I am asking for a class set of "Dog Man" and "My Weird School" books. My students absolutely loved the Captain Underpants books so much that they have now found an interest in Dav Pilkey's Dog Man books! I purchased the first copy of the series for them and they absolutely adore it. Considering the humor in our classroom, I know the book series My Weird School will also be a hit. I want to keep encouraging my students and promoting their love for reading through humor and creativity. I would love to surprise them with some new books in our classroom.

Some books about a weird school and a police dog are just what we need in our classroom to keep encouraging their love of literacy!
