My Students

I have had the luxury of teaching the same 27 amazing students over the course of the past three years. This year I was given the opportunity to teach an ELA elective to encourage the love of reading and hope the educational gap gets smaller. I'd love to supply them with the books this time and not photocopies of the book to help foster this love of reading.

My students, though struggling, are nothing but energetic in my class and aim to please.

My Project

My 27 struggling readers and I are spending this year exploring various books on different sports and comparing them to the movie inspired by the story. Please help me purchase the physical book for them to read.

There's nothing like holding a book that helps spark the love of reading.

So far this year we have been working off of photocopies of the books we are reading. There is not enough money in our budget to afford every book we will read, but to have the opportunity to get them even one would be so amazing.

We thank you for your help!
