My Students

I teach at a very diverse school full of talented students. We have a very high rate of poverty at my school situated in the island of Oahu. Most of our students receive free or reduced lunch.

Despite their socioeconomic status, these students work hard and try their best everyday.

I have 21 students with varied levels for reading, with 9 out of 21 being English Language Learners. My goal as their teachers is to hopefully get them to enjoy reading.

My Project

My students deserve a library area that inspires them! Our library are needs some sprucing up! The new chapter books and library furniture will motivate them to read and help them achieve their reading goals. My students are currently devouring any book that are available on the shelves -no chapter books handy.

The library furnitures will allow my students to be comfortable while learning and enjoying reading great books.

I want my students to have a better reading experience by providing a comfortable, home-like environment in the library area. Please help my students with the support you will give to help them succeed. Thank you so much for your time and support towards my project!
