My Students

My students are the most fun and creative little people I know. This groups of children love to learn and love being in school. I have had the opportunity to instill a love of learning in each and every one of the children that have entered my classroom.

My students love reading bright and colorful books about different cultures.

I've noticed that many of my students love the exposure to different types of books. My students love learning about the world outside of their town and about different types of people.

My Project

Reading books from different genres allows students to learn a lot about the world. I want to immerse my students in a world of literacy.

They will use these books to learn about the world, different cultures, different people, and themselves.

My hope is to help my students build an interest in reading again by providing them with books that look interesting to them.

Of course, we should teach children to judge a book by its cover but they need to find something good to look at. By giving them new colorful books they will be more interested in reading and learning.
