Mrs. Phillips from Huntsville AL is requesting Books through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Read More!

My students need more reading books for our class library. We have had books, however many of those books are outdated, torn and no longer very useful.

This project expired on August 17, 2018.

Hooray! This project is fully funded

My Students

I have an amazing class! My scholars love learning, which makes my job so fulfilling. My students love dance, soccer, drawing, Pandas, world studies, gaming and anything sparkly, slimy or fast paced! This year my scholars have really enjoyed Spelling and Math the most.

I am sure every teacher says their students are the best, as they should, but I still believe I have the most intriguing, intuitive and interesting students!.

My scholars amaze me somehow every single day with their witty jokes, Mathematical inquires or geographic discoveries. I am always looking for ways to challenge and interest them.

My Project

These books will bring award winning titles and themes to our classroom! With this diverse set of book titles, students can read anything from cultural awareness to fantasy and mystery! Some students do not have the availability of books and relevant literature at home.I want my classroom to be a place where literature can be enjoyed and explored without limits for every child.

We endeavor to read more, learn more and explore more!

A class library full of relevant books will help us become more avid readers. I have students who want to read and explore. Please help them succeed!
