Mrs. Christian-Williams from Norfolk VA is requesting Books through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Read, Read, and Read Some More!

My students need books, books, and of course tons of books!

My Students

What can I say, "They are great!".

My students can easily be compared to a fruit bowl full of individuality, attitude and hunger.

They are constantly searching for more, and I want to make the classroom a place where they can get comfortable to do exactly that. If they have access to a larger variety of books and are encouraged to read, they will blossom into the great readers that they were meant to be.

Many of my students receive backpack food on the weekend, and our school also runs a food pantry for our families. Despite so many hardships, my students are eager to learn and do their best. They want to be in school because they want to learn all they can so they can be successful one day.

My Project

Thank you for your interest in my classroom!

The bulk of this request is focused of building my classroom library.

I am requesting an assortment of books that will entice by students to grab one and cop a squat. I really want my boys and girls to yearn for more literature and the best way for me to accomplish my goal is to continuously give them more to read and love.

I am also requesting pencils and erasers because we always need more of these particular supplies.

Thank you again for your help because there is no doubt that I would not be able to do it without YOU!

Grades 3-5
Nearly all students from low‑income households
